    They aren't that hard to find and manufacturers don't push them secretly into the market.

    1TB 7200rpm 9.5mm doesn't exist yet. Get an SSD for speed and a 5400rpm is the better idea for a data drive anyway.

    agreed, this is hardly a how to question

    a simple search of "1TB 7200rpm 9.5mm" would show you some choices if there was one.

    get the Samsung Spinpoint M8 1TB 5400rpm

    I just upgraded mine this weekend. Bought the WD / Seagate Scorpion Blue 1Tb. Only comes in 5400. If they every came out with the 7200 then I would probably upgrade again.

    I don't know if it helps or not, but I ran the blackmagic disktest on my samsung spinpoint m8 1tb and got these results.

    these speeds were much better than my 7200 that came with the computer.

    the OP wanted 7200RPM, which doesn't exist

    the fastest 1TB drive you'll find is 5400RPM

    Thanks, where do you buy "1 tb 12 mm fits on a macbook pro"? I only need to replace the main one. I already replace my cdrom with with second hard drive.

    how do you buy a statement?


    have you found a 1TB that interests you, why not post a link and someone will tell you if it will fit your MBP

    There is no point to it get over it.
    While seagate offers some really thick 15mm 7200rpm drives they are pointless even if they fit. Those have less density and are thus almost slower than the 5400rpm ones. 7200rpm is just noisy and expensive but ultimately useless and the biggest you can go is 750GB.
    500GB platter are out for a while now and no manufacturer seemed to see the need to put them into a 7200rpm drive.

    Any more progress on these? Seems like 7200rpm laptop drives have been capped at 750GB for a long time.
