    BTW, these are 7200.09 drives, not 7200.10. Still, a great deal and I put in two of them in my Mac Pro. :)

    Disk 1:
    Seagate 7200.09 250GB (Boot, Apps)

    Disk 2:
    Partition 1: 10GB
    Partition 2: Remainder

    Disk 3:
    Partition 1: 10GB
    Partition 2: Remainder

    RAID0: Partition1 on Disk 2 and Disk 3 (Scratch disk)
    RAID1: Partition2 on Disk 2 and Disk 3 (/Users, data)

    Ummm...you do know that the Mac Pro and the MacBook Pro use COMPLETELY different sized drives right? If you don't then it will be VERY difficult to install. I'd love to see you try though. Why don't you buy one and post pics of the install process!!!

    No hard drive easily instal to the MBP. It is a complicated process, Google you will see. Hopefully the next revision will include the option to easily change the HD like the MacBook.

    Plus, Apple uses 2.5 inch drives in their MBs and MBPs, this is a 3.5 inch drive. It would make an awesome external drive.

    .10 uses perpendicular recording and is supposed to a little faster. I'm more of a space over speed person when it comes to SATA though, won't notice much difference.

    Can you use 7200.10 seagate drives in Sata150 mode or is it only Sata-II capable drive?? :confused:


    No luck on the in-store locating of Sata-II 500GB of $179.00 as posted @ www.outpost.com
