    All the 250GBs I've checked the past couple weeks have been Hitachis. In fact I've only seen Hitachis in all the models I've checked. I've seen a few people mention Fujitsu too though.

    Yeah there was a Hitachi 250GB in the 15" I had briefly. I checked tomshardware's 2.5" comparison charts and it benched pretty well. It came close to the 7k200 in some tests, not so close in others.

    Yeah if I had a 7k200 laying around I might have just BTO a 17" to save some money, but it was just too convenient to take one home from the apple store Saturday. Machine is so fast I am seriously considering just dumping my quad 2.66 Mac Pro tower.

    Hehe sounds great! I'm actually going to use the 17" as my main machine for a few days to see if I want to sell my mac pro (I know that in speed wise the mac pro will still spank the mbp.. but going to try out the usual stuff that I do and see how it goes, I'm definitely putting the 15" sr mbp up on ebay tomarrow though...
