    Hi all,

    I've currently got a 1TB HDD in my 2009 MBP, but would be really keen to up that to 1.5. I'm not much of an expert on this sort of thing, there only seems to be one model available in a 2.5 inch size:

    Has anyone bought this one before? Is it any good? Also is it even possible to have such a large HDD on Snow Leopard?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yes- Mac OS X supports hard drive sizes we won't be seeing anytime soon.

    That drive is 15mm thick. I'm pretty sure that's not going to fit in your MBP.

    I've read a 12.5MM drive would fit, but I've never tried it.
