    I have an mid 2010 MacbookPro 13" (SuperDrive already changed for WDC WD7500BPVT in OptiBay) and would like to upgrade the 320 Gb HDD to 1TB (12.5 mm thickness). Is it possible? Is 12.5 mm HDD fit good in 13" MBP?
    Which is the best 1 TB HDD of this to buy?
    WD Scorpio Blue WD10TPVT or Toshiba MK1059GSM

    If 12.5 mm 1 TB HDD can't be installed in 13" MacbookPro, which HDD better of this list of 750 Gb models?

    WD Scorpio Blue WD7500BPVT
    Hitachi Travelstar 5K750
    Seagate Momentus ST9750423AS
    Toshiba MK7559GSXP

    I have the WD 1TB drive in my 17". It fits perfectly. I've heard from others here that it also fits in the 13".

    Have you considered a SSD + 1 TB combo?

    So, what to choose?
    WD or Toshiba?
