    Default Macbook 4,1 HDD & Ram Update ?
    After doing some research, I found out that I an able to put Kingston 4GB (2x2GB Modules) 667MHz DDR2 SoDimm.

    Is 4GB the highest I can go or can I fit 6GB or 8GB into this model?

    As for the hard drive, I really want to put a
    Western Digital Scorpio 2.5-Inch 500 GB SATA Internal Hard Drive 7200RPM in. I read somewhere(wish I could remember) that the Macbook 4,1 will only take up to 320GB. if thats the case than I want the Western Digital 320 GB Scorpio Black SATA 7200 RPM.

    Any thoughts on this set-up would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I read, it must meet these requirements:
    - Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR2 SO-DIMM) format
    - 1.25 inch or smaller
    - 512 MB, 1 GB, or 2 GB
    - 200-pin
    - PC2-5300 DDR2 667 MHz Type RAM

    So, it can hold up to 4GB.

    For the hard drive disk, you can use 300GB or 500GB disk.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
