    Which Mac OS for 2008 Macbook?

    Lion (OS 10.7) is pretty ram hungry, and always felt half baked. For the hardware in question I think the OP would be better off installing Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.8)

    What is the best data recovery place?

    At my university's IT department we used Gillware for drives that were beyond ddrescue or Photorec. Great service and generally lower prices than DriveSavers.

    apple service diagnostic

    If you in fact have a 2.0GHz DP 2004 Powermac G5, then that's the service diagnostics that you need (straight from Global Service Exchange). It will actually boot just fine from a CD. Once you boot the disc and see the VERY spartan OS 9 style interface, you'll understand why it's so small.

    Best 12-13"

    I picked up an Asus U36JC about a month ago and have been very happy. The build quality is very good and the battery life is great. It does get a little warm during processor intensive tasks but it's tolerable. Not nearly as hot as my 1st generation Macbook Pro :D

    iPhone vs Nexus One

    You could pick up a refurbished/used iPod to fill the in car void. I'd say it's a pretty small sacrifice to escape Apple's walled garden (at least for your phone).
