View Full Version : iTunes and Macbook Pro storage.

Dec 9, 2010, 07:15 AM
Hey all,
The 'How organised are your movies' thread got me to thinking about my iTunes collection.
I got my apple TV a couple of weeks ago, and think its brilliant.
Ideally I would like to have all my DVD discs ripped to itunes, and then put the discs in the loft somewhere. This is where I have a problem. I have a Macbook Pro with 250GB hard drive, and only have 60 GB left.

The most logical option would probably to buy a 1 or 2 TB external drive, and move my iTunes library there, but that sort of defeats the point in having a notebook, I like to carry my music and movies and TV shows around with me.

So bigger internal hard drive appears to be the next solution. But as far as I can work out, the biggest internal drive for a Macbook Pro is 500GB, which will probably fill up pretty quick once I start ripping my TV series box sets too.

Has anyone else had this conundrum, what did you do?

[Edit] Typical, I post this and then find this link.

This would fit a late 2009 13" macbook pro, right?
