    So,
    I want to get more hard drive space and was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction.
    I'm looking for a minimum of 300 GB. It doesn't really matter if it's 5400 or 7200 rpm.
    Is Scorpio from WD still the best option?

    I have a 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MBP

    Thanks in advance

    I did the 320GB WD Scorpio (@5400 RPM) and I'm happy with it.

    Got it from Best Buy and installed myself.

    Yeah, I have been looking at the 320 GB Scorpio. It looks pretty nice, but I just wanted to know if there is a better alternative or if the scorpio still is the way to go.

    Just got WD Scorpio 320 GB in an OWC case, works great. I think the WD Scorpio 320 GB is going for around $140. If you have the 17 inch MBP, you can get the physically (dimensionally) bigger 500 GB. Otherwise I think 320 GB is currently the max for 2.5 inch x 9.5 mm drives. Watch out for those Samsung Spinpoint 2.5 inch and the Hitachi Travelstar 2.5 inch drives, I've read some mixed reviews about both of them.

    Thanks for the response man.
    It looks like the Scorpio is the way to go:)
    Can't wait to get more free space!
