    Would this be a good purchase for my Macbook Pro 13', 7,1?

    I currently have the 250GB drive, if i get this i will put the 500GB into the laptop itself and put the 250GB into the eternal case.

    So yea, in your opinion would it be worth the buy? And if anyone has one are they reliable?

    Thanks

    If you need more space and speed, then it is. That's a very popular and good drive but all HDs will eventually die so remember to backup

    I own that exact drive. Bought it a few months back to replace my stock 250gb 5400 drive.

    Runs great - no real vibration issues, no additional battery drain. Good drive

    This should work too. Same case, different drive.

    I have tried both the Seagate and the Hitachi. They are both very fast, but the Hitachi runs a little bit cooler in my MBP.

    The Seagate is OK too, mostly a persona preference thing.:cool:
