    I am very very tempted to get a very low mileage 2011 MBP that someone I know is selling for a very good price. The only problem is it has an SSD which is only a problem because it is only 60GB.

    I want to replace it with a 500GB 7200rmp HDD. Is this one a good option? http://www.ebuyer.com/product/153103
    Is anything else needed like extra cables or whatever?

    Is it a difficult job to swap them? The person selling who is an apple repair technician says he will do it for me if I collect the mac in person so I may not have to do it myself.

    Not bad but certainly not the fastest.

    Faster options (besides SSDs):
    1. Seagate Momentus XT 500GB
    2. WD Scorpio Black 750GB
    3. Hitachi 7K750 750GB
    4. Samsung HM640JJ
    5. Hitachi 7K500 500GB
