    hi,
    whats the biggest size (gb) internal hard drive can you put into a new macbook?

    shall i go for 7200rpm?
    anyone put a 7200rpm into a black macbook?
    any issues?
    (i hear it overheats a bit more, and battery dies quicker)

    cheers.

    Samsung 500GB is the biggest right now.
    DO NOT get Hitachi 5K500 because it is slightly bigger than standard.

    I had a Samsung SpinMaster in my older HP zd8000 and it died literally the day after the warranty expired. Samsung wouldn't replace it.

    Just my $0.02.
