I have a Macbook pro from 2006 running the Intel GMA 950 graphics processor with 64MB of DDR2 SDRAM. Is it possible to upgrade this for less than $200 in hardware costs? If so, what are my options and how do I get one?
The Macbook integrated video is soldered to the motherboard and is not upgradable. RAM and hard drives are very easy to upgrade though!
Looking to play games? If so, then a cheap PC or gaming console is the least expensive way to go. Otherwise, you can upgrade to one of the newer Macbook Pros that has graphics more suited towards gaming.
The first and worst mistake you made was that you got a Mac, no offence.
Like rwp said, if the upgrade is for games, then you may as well get a PC, its just easier. Or a games console.
Apart from that, if you're set on sticking with the Nazis *ahem* Apple, then you'll need to navigate their walled garden to a newer overpriced laptop with their logo on it. I think they'll be sporting the Radeon 5xxx series now am i right?
Pardon my strong feelings towards Apple, somewhere in there is advice!
