Upgrading the new (late 2008) MacBook
I installed new RAM and a new hard drive in my late 2008 MacBook.
The RAM didn’t work. Based on the responses to my post on the Apple discussion board, the new MacBooks are extremely finicky about their RAM. PC3-8500 DDR3 1066 Mhz may not be the only qualifications required…
The hard drive did/does work. It’s a Western Digital Scorpio Black 7200 RPM 320GB drive. The installation steps in the MacBook owners manual are incomplete, though. You’ll NEED a #0 phillips and a Torx T6.
