I'm saving up to buy a 13" MBP come next refresh and am planning to upgrade the internal HDD to the Hybrid Seagate XT drive.

Is it safe to assume the XT will still work with the newer laptops due to the size/connector being standard?

I'm thinking of getting the HDD ahead of time so when I do get the MBP I have it ready to go.

So all internal laptop HDDs are the same then?

Good to know.

I was planning on getting the OWC kit that comes with the tools and USB enclosure for the one you take out. Is there a better place/deal out there than that?

Any standard 9.5mm height ones will fit. The 1TBs are 12.5mm so max choice will be 750gb i believe.
