Replacing Hard Drive - Macbook

Recommended Posts

Can any Mac techies advise on the best place to purchase a new hard disk for my Macbook (2007). It needs replacing, which I am happy to do myself but not sure of the best place to begin looking for a new one.

 

Cheers

Get rid of them mechanical disks and put in a SSD and turn that mac into a flying machine. Ebuyer are doing 120gb OCZ agility 3 for less then £55.

 

I put one in my 2006 Mac mini and it rocks !

 

 

All you do is either clone the HDD with a clone tool ( that's what I did ). I popped the SSD into an external caddy and in about 1/2 hour swapped them over and job done. If you do use SSD you will need to enable TRIM , that is an option only enabled on genuine apple SSD HDD's. the TRIM makes the disk faster and can be enabled with 3rd party patch that's a small .dgm file.

 

I've done it and its brill !
