    Does anyone know if the 160GB HD in the 17" MBP C2D contains Seagate or Hitachi?

    Mine's a Hitachi HTS541616J9SA00.

    I had a Seagate in my 17" PBG4. The Hitachi spindle motor seems very slightly quieter.

    Thanks for the info...I concerned about quality and have the notion that the Seagate is better quality than compared to the Hitachi. I understand that both has the new perpendicular recording (PMR) in the MBP C2D's.

    I had a complete data loss one of my older laptops (non Apple) and was unable to recover the data due to a faulty I'm somewhat concerned about which has the better quality.

    I just got the 15 C2D Wednesday and it has the Hitachi Drive and you can hear it accessing the drive. I bought my wife the 15 C2D last month when they came out and hers has the Fujitsu Hard drive which you cant even hear it accessing the drive like you can on the Hitachi.
