So, I bought a standard, from the store, in a box Macbook. I have discovered that 250gb is WAY too little for my needs, and would like more. However, I am not about to tackle this myself, so is it possible to take my Macbook into an Apple Store and have an employee do it for me, transferring my current Hard Drive's contents onto a 500gb Drive? Is there a charge for this, beyond the cost of the Drive? How much would the drive be?
Thanks.

How about buying an external drive to store your extra data? Easy as plugging it in to a usb port.
Any opinions on how this may limit how you work with the external drive that the OP may want to consider?
Personally I would upgrade the drive, use a firewire case to transfer your data(clone the old drive onto the new) and windup with your old drive in the case as a external backup/extra storage drive. This is totally a totally new idea to me, but told it is easy; this will be my spring break upgrade project, should be a total under $150 I think.
