Planning on upgrading my new macbook to 4GB ram and a 500GB HDD. I have read a lot of horror stories from people upgrading memory and hdd on the new macbooks. So need some advice since only a few people I know own macs and they have never done anything like this themselfs. Here is the memory I was planning on getting. Is this a trusted site? Will this be alright for the macbook? They say it certified, but anyone can say that. http://www.macmemory.com/ItemDescription.asp?Item=MBAL4G Here is the HDD Im planning on buying. Looks alright? And the price seems right. http://www.macmemory.com/ItemDescription.asp?Item=N5SAM500 So what do the trusted folks at IPTF's think? One more thing, I have read a few tutorials on upgrading the HDD without lossing anything, but they seem a little overly complicated. making bootable copys to one hard drive installing the new hard drive and moving the bootable to the new one after formatting it or useing TM and almost the same steps. My idea is to connect the new HDD to my macbook with a SATA to USB adapter, then formatting the drive and make a bootable copy to it. Now all I have to do is swap the drives and turn it on. Would that work? There is no firewire on the macbook so Im just asumming it will work with USB.
