Parts that work with MacBook 13" Core Duo:
The MacBook 13" Core Duo can be easily upgraded to a total of 2 GB of memory using two 1 GB RAM chips, and a 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive will give you plenty of storage. You can upgrade to the Santa Rosa/Penryn Upper Case, featuring a new keyboard layout (including iTunes controls)! The 8x SuperDrive is the fastest optical drive for this model and will make creating DVDs a whiz. Have you ever been caught sleeping while waiting for your file to transfer over slow wireless network? We can wipe away that unnecessary snooze-fest with the Airport Extreme 802.11n Card upgrade.
There is one main variation within this model. The heat sink thermal sensors may have three-wall or four-wall connectors. This affects the heat sink and logic board. See photos and part descriptions on the three-wall or four-wall heat sinks for information on determining which version you have.
