    WD started selling a 1.5TB & 2TB 2.5" WD Green drives a few months ago with a height of 15mm.

    Can these drives fit into a 2011 13" MBP? I've read reports online that the tallest drive they can accept are 12.5mm.

    There have been a few who tried. You can put it in but it bulges the bottom plate. So it doesn't quite fit.
    In theory though a 3 platter 12.5mm 1.5TB drive should be possible already. I don't know if one exists but they should.
