Hi, im a novice mac user and I just picked up a late 2006 macbook off ebay and I couldn't help but wonder if there is some way to remove the 120gig 5400rpm sata2 drive it came with for a nice modern OCZ vertex III 60gig sata3 SSD WITHOUT rendering the laptop unstable or otherwise unreliable as im not interested in my non-gaming computer failing at random. Also how would I go about transfering everything from the current hard drive to the new SSD if its even possible for me to install one? Its specs are 1.5 gigs 667 MHz DDR2 ram, 2 GHz Core duo(OCed if this matters), OSx 10.6.8. Thanks.
It should be fine, just install the drive like you would a new hard drive and reinstall the OS. Find a video online, Macbooks are hard to take apart. Don't try to clone the hard drive onto the SSD, do a clean install. Don't forget to force-enable TRIM.
