    Hi,

    Just curious, which 160GB drive is Apple using in the C2 MPB? Is it the Perpendicular-Recording drive made by Seagate? I have read some post where people seem to implicitly assume that this is the drive, but are there any confirmations?

    Sadly no. Mine cames with the Hitachi. Uses the perpendicular technology though. I hate Hitachi on the other hand and was hoping I'd get one with the Seagate.

    Four votes for Hitachi now ;) so I think it's a safe assumption that's the drive.

    Oh bummer! I had hoped they were putting the Seagate in there. I really like mine and the 5 year warranty is great! I look forward to seeing how happy people are with the Hitachi's...

    With OEM products the harddrives and memorys etc are not under that normals companies Warranty Plan but goes under Apple's so doesn't matter if it's a Seagate or Hitachi in that sense

    Yep... you'll only get 3 years of warranty if you buy Apple Care... 1 year if you don't. Regardless of the drive manufacturer.

    Well in my experience I found Seagate to be more reliable. I had nothing but trouble with Hitachi, so I hope the one in my new MBP is not jinxed as well.

    Hitachi's not that bad of a brand. They took over IBM, and hopefully solved all the DeathStar drive problems. (My DarkStar worked fine)
