    Just about to pick up a top end 2.8Ghz MBP for a lot less than Apple have them for sale, and yes I know Apple may release a refreshed spec but meh

    Since its coming with the 5400RPM 500Gb did, I thought about swapping out the drive for a 7200rpm one.

    So what is the best mechanical drive to put in my MBP? I am based in the UK

    I have the 7200.4 500 gig drive and I'm happy with it. Seagate has always been a good drive and usually recommend them over anyone else.
