    Hi, I'm thingking to change my HDD on my 2.0 MBP.
    Currentlly 100gb HDD is installed . And that's not enough for me , i want to buy the 160 GB hdd, and i search around and find this http://www.seagate.com/cda/products/discsales/marketing/detail/0,1081,736,00.html

    A seagate mommentus 5400.3 160GB 2,5"
    will they fit ok on my MBP or is there any better solution?
    i don't like external harddis as they are quite a burden to carry arround, please give me some clue , thx.
    cause i browse the net that some says it can, but some said it wou;dn't work, but my friend have this 160 mommentus drive in his powerbook G4 and it works well, i don't know if this possible on my MBP.

    Wrong interface. That is UltraATA/100. You need SATA.

    in that case , is there any other 160GB notebook hard disk out there ?
    and what's brand is the one inside my MBP.
    i really need bigger capacity, and i don't like external.

    is there any suggestion ?
    cause running OSX and WinXP is taking too much space already :p
    and My MBP is a desktop replacement for me, so all my data has to be in it.

    For what it's worth: I've read that Seagate will sell a SATA version later on this year.

    I know of no current SATA laptop drives larger that the ones already available as MBP options.
