Is there anything out there bigger than a 120gb internal hardrive for the macbookpro. As far as I can see you cant get a 2.5" drive bigger than 120gb. Is it realistic to see something come out in the future... Say 300gb? i get anoyed having to carry around 2 portable drives!

Well if you want a HD bigger than the largest one apple supplies than you'll have to buy it and install it yourself. I think i've seen 2.5 drives as big as 160gb.

As far as bigger drives in the future... sure. Everything gets bigger and faster these days. I wouldn't hold my breath for a 300gb 2.5 though. That might take two years, or more. There's really no way to tell for sure.

Anyway, what takes up all that space that 120gb won't hold it all? :)

I have 2 external drives and wouldn't even dream of having such a huge drive in my laptop incase it got lost, broken or stolen. Its also nice to have extra drives for backup purposes. Then again, I also prefer speed in a laptop drive and not capacity.

Personally, I'm waiting for one of those new Samsung drives to come out, the ones with 128 or 256 meg caches! Boy o boy, inside a 12"PB? Yes please!
