What Type of Optical Drive Does It Use?
Hi, I'm about to buy a second-hand Black MacBook Core Duo to replace my PowerBook G4. It's used, and has a non-functional optical drive, but works 100% otherwise. I was wondering what kind of SuperDrive it uses. My Powerbook G4 (17" 1.5Ghz Low-Res) has a PATA 8X superdrive in it, and I was planing on just taking the drive out of there, and putting it in the MacBook. I know that earlier MacBooks use PATA drives as well, so this should be possible. Is this true, or will I need ot buy a new optical drive?
Also, I'm not to familiar with newer (Post-PowerPC) Macs. I'm paying around $300 for this laptop. Is that a decent deal? It also may need a new battery, as it's seller is telling me that it only gets around 2 hours on a full charge.
The laptop specs are:
-2.0Ghz Core Duo
-80GB Hard Drive
-OS 10.6 Snow Leopard Installed
It also includes Leopard Restore Disks, and the Charger
