    I was mostly talking hardware limitations on the macbook. In working at a repair center the darn things had (literally) 110 screws you need to remove to do something simple like replace the hdd. Ram upgrade? Forget about it. I still don't understand the nonremovable battery either, those things only last ~3 years

    You can put any piece of hardware on it you have drivers for, if they are not built in.

    Please explain this.

    Today my friend at school just offered to pay me to replace the screen on his macbook pro. I have taken a lot of pc's apart and put them back together... am I going to have a really hard time with this fruit comp? I have never disassembled a mac. Do you think I can do it, or should I tell him to see an expert. Any tips?

    Don't try - things are NOT easy to work on and you'll void the (pretty worthless, granted) waranty

    Look online first at some instructions, get grounded, and dust-free before you attemp as well. Unless he's paying you 100 bucks its probably not worth the effort..

    I upgraded the RAM in all my Macs. One screw and a door. On my pro 4 screws to replace the HDD.

    How old are your macs? Are they the new ones? Granted I worked on them about 4 years ago but it left a very nasty taste in my mouth.

    You figure out how to replace the battery yet?

    How to open a Macbook Pro

    Granted, I did exaggerate and I switched the reasoning behind the ram and hdd upgrades, it's still a pain.

    Well, all my MBP's are one panel with, I think, 3-4 screws and you can replace the RAM. Matter of fact on my MBP, you don't even need a screwdriver to replace the HDD or battery. The plate for the battery and HDD are right there on the bottom with a little hinged lever. Now my iBook on the other hand had umpteen screws with what seemed like aluminum torx heads... can't tell you how many of those suckers I almost completely stripped out.

    My laptops are newer. But My brand new Power Mac is amazing the door has a lock. Then you pop off an air directory, and all the drive bays are on sliders. You do not even have to plug in the drives. Just mount them on the 4 screws and slide them in. Plus there are 4 bays!
