    doing a quick search reveals that a 100gb laptop hard drive is going to cost at least $200. As for installation, if you are willing to take the risk you could do it yourself. If not you might get an Apple Technician to do it for you. Either way, installing anything inside a 12" PB is really difficult. Just look at the guides at PBFixIt.com.

    The seagate 100 gb drive is 200.00 from Best Buy or 176.00 from newegg.com.

    Installing it in a 12 isn't impossible if you are comfortable doing such a thing.

    The screws are tiny. Just go slow and be careful not to rip any ribbon cables.

    I did this last week with no problems. Typing on my 12" 1.33 w/ 100 gig Seagate right now.

    Heat is the same, power seems to be the same too.

    what about a 15"? is it as "difficult" as the 12"?
