    I want to update my new MacBook's Hard Drive to either 120Gb or 160Gb one. Does anyone know any sites in the UK where I could get a good Hard Drive for less than £153?

    Be careful and get any 5400 or 7200 RPM SATA disk. Avoid 4200 RPM disk and IDE/ATA/UATA disks... Don't know where to get it, as the UK version of my preferred supplier, Komplett, doesn't appear to have any 2.5" SATA disks (the Norwegian store has three available)... :(

    Apple has also released a Replace your MacBook's HD DIY manual... so unless you actually damage something when replacing it all your warranties should be intact... :)

    I'd also like to know this as I've checked out some sites like ebuyer and dabs but I am not sure which one's are compatible and which aren't...

    If anyone has bought a HD for there MacBook from a UK supplier it would be nice to hear from them,

    Update: Don't know if this one would work, but for just over £100 for 120gb seems like a nice deal

    All things more or less equal I always go with Seagate. It just feels safer... ;)

    I agree pay the little bit extra and go for seagate, they are nice and quiet and always reliable, as well as coming with a 5 year warranty....
