    I have a Macbook (2 GHz Intel core duo, so getting a little old) And the Sub-100 GB hard drive just isn't cutting it for me. Want a new macbook, but really don't need one for what I use this for at school. Was wondering what a good hard drive (120 GB) would be to upgrade to and where to get it from

    Thanks!

    If you can afford this drive, I would go for the 320Gb hard drive like the one here.

    this is a great drive, highly recommended...but if you wanted something a little faster...get a 7200RPM drive...but then again, i guess it just depends on what you are doing with your computer

    Thanks for the help..... as much as I would like a new macbook (probably even more after the new ones come out) I think beefing up the hard drive is all I need.

    But don't fall into the trap and buy a _small_ 7200 rpm drive. With everything else equal, bigger drives are faster than smaller drives. A 320 GB 5400 rpm drive is quite cheap; if you want a 7200 rpm drive that is actually _faster_, you will have to buy 250 or 320 GB. 100 GB will be slower.
