just looking for some as cheap as possible - to go in an old black macbook that I am trying to get running again - and still not sure if it will boot so doing it on the cheap just in case. just needs to fit an old ver of OSX so probably smallest that would work is 10 gigs.

prefer Wellington so no ship cost.

Pretty sure I have a 100gbish drive doing nothing at home you can have for the price of some beer or something similar.

And conveniently I'm in Wellington.. PM me and I'll try and remember to find it and bring it in tomorrow.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

nice! have a black macbook sitting on my desk running Snow Leopard on a 100Gig HDD Lias hooked me up with!

Have ordered a set of replacement case screws from the states and looks like it just needs (according to the forums ive checked) either a new battery and/or battery connector and it will be back to life again.

Thanks again Lias!
