    Is it possible to upgrade the hard drive in my Macbook? I want to have 1TB of space for saving movies, music, etc. directly on my laptop; I do not want anything external. I think it would be easier to have all the media content right on my laptop via the iTunes vs. having it someone else and having to bring it in to watch something. If I did get the extra internal hard drive, where is a good place to take it to get it installed professionally?

    What kind of set-ups do ya'll have if you have a huge amount of content that you want stored?

    Thanks.

    You can replace the current internal drive with another drive but there is no space for a second drive inside the case.

    There are kits that replace the optical drive with a hard drive. I'm not sure if there is one for the MacBook though...

    You'll be waiting a while for a terabyte 2.5" drive.

    500 gigabytes is the largest size right now, and that'll set you back.

    the most you can get in a laptop drive is 500GB
    you would have to go external to get another 500GB(but you could get a small bus powered one)

    Nah, you can, as I said above, replace the optical drive with a hard drive.
