    Do you think a bigger hard drive will be offered for the new MBPs? More than 250 gb? I'm hoping 350

    I wouldn't mind having a 7200 RPM 320GB drive. That would be cool.

    From what I've seen, the MacBook Pro revisions alternate in technical and specification updates. Technical updates generally focus on component upgrades, while specification updates generally focus on increasing the spec of the existing components.

    January 2006: Technical (Intel, new GPU), small HD bump
    October 2006: Specification (RAM, VRAM doubled), big HD bump
    June 2007: Technical (LED, Santa Rosa, new GPU), small HD bump
    February 2008: Specification (VRAM doubled), big HD bump
    October 2008: Technical (new chipset, case redesign), small HD bump?

    So I don't expect a big HD bump for this revision.

    They are available now, pop the old one out, and put in a new one.

    I did it...

    I bought and Installed a Hitachi 320/7200 in my year old MBP and WOW does it go better than the 160/5400... not real noisy and no noticeable lesser battery life either!! Highly recommended by me.. :D

    Not as simple a task as it is on the Macbook. Some users won't want to try this.

    Cheers,

    Agreed. It was a pain to take apart the Pro
