    Does anyone know of a site that has some 250GB or more 2.5" Serial ATA hard drives for the third generation 13" MacBook?

    I've been looking on Amazon and have been trying to do some Google searches but I'm not having much luck because I'm not really sure which hard drives are safe to put into a MacBook.

    Western Digital would be nice and I saw some people on YouTube with 250GB ones from Western Digital but I can't find those.

    Yes that should work, but the seller doesn't list the brand, the spec, just the drive... might want to ask for details.

    However for 79 quid, I'd get a 320GB for less!

    Thanks!

    The Western Digital at the top of the first link was good, but I think I want a 320GB. The Samsung 320GB was good, but I would prefer buying from Western Digital (and Amazon).

    So, with the links you gave me, I was able to find exactly what I was looking for right on Amazon (that I apparently couldn't find earlier).

    So now I have a new question. Will that 320GB Western Digital hard drive with my two Kingston 2GB RAM sticks make for a beastly setup in my 13" MacBook 2.2GHz, or is this just stupid and not good for the MacBook?

    newegg.com has tons of laptop (2.5") hard drives in 250, 300, and 320. Just make sure its a sata/150 or 300 , and not IDE.

    Yes! Newegg.com is an EXCELLENT resource for HDs, I ordered a 250GB one from them for my MacBook. They accept PayPal, fyi.
