    I just got back and just discovered this wonderful thread.
    I am signing in and locking onto this... as I am quite a new user of MacBook Pro. Haven't dare to even try out the many other applications on it yet.
    Didn't even dare to buy the latest Snow Leopard. Still using the old OSX.

    no issues, other than are you comfortable doing it yourself? it's not that difficult but if you not sure, may i suggest you buy from maybe SGL (sim lim sq 2nd floor, near overhead bridge) and ask the kind lady to install for you.

    no issues for me... i have done my own upgrades on my intel laptops before, i guess the theory should be the same.

    btw i read in hwz forums, WD hdd is recommended. u got any recommendations?

    get wd if it makes you feel more comfortable. otherwise just go with the flavour of the month. from my experience, hdd quality varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, month to month, year to year.

    PowerMacs? Those are ancient stuff my friend... hehe...

    Only a crazy bugger would carry around a Mac Pro everywhere. My ass is usually stuck to the chair so my machine don't need to go anywhere. LOL!

    i would say your mileage may vary. in general i would say no since video cards for mac usually have a different firmware which is required during booting.

    see here for more info.
