Default MacBook HD

I am planning on buying a MacBook near March. I want to upgrade it later and was thinking of a memory upgrade (1.5gigs) and a HD upgrade. I cannot seem to find HDs for MacBooks. Please help me if you know anything about this issue.

MacBooks use the same 2.5" SATA HDDs as any other laptop.

Apple computers aren't exactly known for their upgradability. I'm pretty sure they use normal 2.5" notebook hard drives, but formatting and installing with Mac OS X is out of my hands. You might want to ask this over at Apple's forums or some Mac forums.

Ah, okay. Wasn't sure if it was just like reinstalling Windows.

Well all that stuff is just for networking, which I've never found to be tedious. As for CD keys, Apple computers aren't as common as Windows PC's, so there is no point to have any CD keys for OS X.

There's no point in having CD keys because they're easier to bypass, not because Apple doesn't have enough customers.
