    so the new merom machines are out... I'm considering an upgrade. I work a lot with audio and video capture and I'd really like to get a 7200 RPM drive, however on my little look on the apple site, the 7200RPM is only an option on the 17"!
    is this the way it's gonna be?
    If it's a standard seriel ATA drive, then surely you could still put it in... however I know the situation is the same with the macbooks, and apparently putting a 7200'er voids warranty!
    Have they replaced the MBP's hard drive loader with the same user-replaceable kind as the macbook?

    check the slew of other threads already on this topic.

    For the most part, it appears that the 160GB 5400 has very similar performance to the 100GB 7200 (a tad slower, but not by much)
