    I want to upgrade HDD for my Macbook and was looking at WD Scorpio Blue 1 TB Internal hard drive. I know its about 2mm thicker than a standard laptop drive and read of people cramming it into MBpros with success.
    Has anyone tried a pre-unibody Macbook?

    Pre-unibody MacBook (Pros) other that 17" cannot fit 12.5mm HDs AFAIK, so no. 750GB is the biggest you can get

    Nah they're too big. Get a 750GB, which I'm sure should be enough :D

    From Apple's support pages:

    With force, it may be possible, however you risk the safety of the disk.

    Thanks, this has been helpful. 750gb will be cutting it close but I guess it'll have to do for now.
