    So I figure I should prepare and start looking for a replacement, what is recommended in the 500GB range for macbook pros mid 2010?

    Any of these will do.

    Do you want a 5400rpm (slower but quieter) or a 7200rpm (faster but louder) drive? WD Scorpio Blue is a good 5400rpm drive, while WD Scorpio Black is a good 7200rpm drive.

    Also, I'd recommend getting an external HDD for backup; so it'll be easier to recover all your files once you swap the hard drives.

    Thanks, I do have an external time machine backs it up often.
