    this is my first post here but i am reading you since the beginning of the "arrandale waiting!"

    Since i am going to buy a new 17" Macbook pro i want to know what kind of 7200rpm drive Apple will put in my mbp. It is a seagate, a WD or a hitachi?

    Thank you and sorry for my bad english! :D

    I've called Apple Sales and an Apple store with the same question. They don't know and/or can't tell me. I'm hoping the 500GB 7200rpm upgrade is the Hitachi TravelStar 7K500 though. Having searched and read most of the related threads here, and judging by customer reviews at Newegg, it's the amongst the fastest, if not the fastest (depending on the benchmark), and the quietest.

    I would like to know this as well. It would be great if it was a Hitachi TravelStar 7K500.
