    I have a friend who's been using there 2007 MacBook Pro on a regular basis. However, the space limitations are starting to become a bit of a problem. That, and 5400 rpm is pretty slow.

    So the question is this: What HDD would you suggest going with? SSDs are too expensive at the moment, so they're not an option. We're not looking to spend too much money. I think 500GB should suffice. Even 320GB would be more than enough.

    On a side note, Mroogle isn't working.

    Do you mean MRoogle is literally out of order? Or you just can't find the information you need?

    Also, I love 7200rpm drives, but I don't know of any super popular ones for that model. Is the speed really that much of an issue, and if so, would just a HDD upgrade help that much?
