…to everyone who sent or posted tech advice.

Unfortunately, I’d already salvaged what I could from the hard drive and sent it off for repair when I put up the post. Didn’t use the Apple store, though. I sent it to an independent Apple repair/upgrade shop in Maryland. And it’s apparently already done.

MORE: Well, hell. They installed Leopard when they put in the new hard drive, but in the process I lost the iLife ’06 bundle that came with the computer. Anyone know how I can reinstall my old iLife package? The two installation disks that came with the Macbook aren’t of much help.

MORE II: Okay, I found a dummy-proof tutorial here.

    Did you go to MacUpgrades in Bethesda, they’ve always done really good work for me? I had a hard drive break during my finals last year and they had the new one installed and got the computer back to me on the third day.

    The important question: Is Leopard a slug compared to Tiger (10.4.x)?

    Based on what i’ve seen of it, it works fine on the new intel mac notebooks, a friend of mine has a macbook pro and it operates pretty smoothly. I have a G4 iBook and I haven’t changed yet, I don’t want to shill out the money for the additional RAM I know i’ll need to make Leopard work smoothly.

    Leopard runs fine on my G4 Mini and on my Intel MacBook. My only complaints so far: Mail is HIDING what it calls Junk Mail, so I had to shut off the feature. Second: iCal now requires more steps to make an entry.
