The Core 2 Duo MacBooks feature beefier processors, thanks to the Core 2 Duo chipset.
A total of 3 GB of memory (using a 2 GB RAM chip and a 1 GB RAM chip) will max out your machine's capacity. The biggest hard drive that can currently be put into these laptops is the 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive. The 8x SuperDrive is the fastest optical drive for these models and will make creating DVDs a whiz. You can also upgrade the upper case to the Penryn/Santa Rosa version with the new keyboard layout (including iTunes controls)!
There is one main variation within these models. Your machine may be a Energy Star-equipped or non-Energy star version. This affects the battery connector and logic board. See photos and part descriptions on the non-Energy Star or Energy Star battery connector/sleep sensors for information on determining which version you have.
