    Would any owners of current model 2010 Mac Pros be so kind as to post what manufacturer/model hard drives Apple uses for their stock 1TB and 2TB drives? I read somewhere on the forums that someone believed the 1TB to be a Caviar Black, but I find that hard to believe, so if anyone could please check their drive info for the stock 1TB/2TB and chime in, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Why is it hard to believe that those drives are WD Black ones?

    My 2009 Pro came with a Black drive.

    However, you can't really determine which drive you'll get. Apple doesn't use a single supplier only.

    1TB is the Black, 2TB I don't know as I haven't come across one yet...

    Why is it so hard to believe!?

    Since the 1TB Caviar Black supplied with the Mac Pro is the older 32MB cache model instead of the newer 64MB model it is therefore easy to believe.

    Ahh... I just assumed Apple would try to be as cost effective as possible and it didn't occur to me that it could be the 32MB cache version. Thanks everyone for the replies!
