    I've been looking online at Dabs.com, but they don't seem to have a 160GB/200GB HardDrive for sale for use in the MacBooks. If I understand correctly I need a:

    Serial ATA Drive,
    2.5" x 1/8H

    Is this correct?

    So are there good online sites where I can buy these HardDrives in the UK? (Preferably a Seagate model, as I have heard good things about them).

    I think I saw some at ebuyer.com but they are not listed under Notebook HD but under SATA HD 20GB-120GB or somethng like that, haven't been on ebyer now but I saw it yesterday as I ordered an ATA model 60GB laptop HD and saw a SATA while browsing

    Thanks, but I've just checked out ebuyer.com, and I have had no luck. (May I also add what a terribly designed site it is when trying to navigate the Hard Drive section. It's so confusing).

    scan.co.uk and dabs.com are easy to get around.

    I know dabs has Seagate drives.

    Yes, sorry. I was meant to add that to my last email. It will work.
