    I purchase almost all my Mac upgrades from them... Good shop from the times I've bought from them. Mostly just RAM and Hard Drives though.

    Speaking about HDD. I'm thinking about upgrading my HDD to 500GB as well.

    Which do you think is the better buy (and why)? Will I notice any decrease in battery if I choose the 7200RPM?


    Seagate 7200RPM 500GB 16MB $149.99

    or

    Seagate 5400RPM 500GB 8MB $99.00

    Almost always unless I manage to find a part cheaper elsewhere but that's rare.

    I used OWC for RAM for my old MBP, my newish iMac, a 320GB hard drive for my old MBP (although I only did this instead of buying it from NewEgg because it also came with a very handy firewire/usb enclosure that i could use after my hard drive swap), and some other little items over the past few years. I love them.

    Yes, OWC is a very reputable site for Mac upgrades. Don't hesitate to do business there.

    I live in Europe, but even I've ordered both my external hard drive enclosures from OWC.
