    My warranty Runs out in July, and thats when im going to do a strip, clean up, replace the case, etc. And wanted to install a 500Gb Hdd, are any companies known to be making 7200rpm 500Gb Drives? I think i saw Seagate where, but im not 100% Sure.

    Thanks for any help, and yes, i will document my clean up ;)

    many vendors are already listing the 7200 500GB drive from SeaGate, although none seem to be ready to ship yet. Most are saying some time in Feb now, although it's been pushed back again and again, originally I think they were saying december. Either way, it's a safe bet that it'll be out by July. Keep an eye on this thread:

    The latest post says apparently one store should have it in stock by tomorrow.
