    Hi. Just got my new 17" MBP and was hoping that I could verify that I got the right hard drive installed. I ordered the 160gb 7200rpm unit and just wanted to make sure that I got it instead of the slower unit. Thanks in advance.

    Click the Apple menu on the top left, click 'About this Mac' and then the 'More Info' button, this runs the System Profiler. Click on 'Serial ATA' and then on the drive listed in the right pane. This should give you the drive type that's installed. A quick Google should get you to the full specs on the manufacturers pages

    Hey, Thanks a million! Yep, it's the 7200. Now I can sleep through the night.
