    thanks so much for that input, but i dont need a 500GB drive per-se. I just need something cheap that will give me enough space to install windows 7. :D

    So what about this one?: Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVS 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" SATA 1.5Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - OEM

    I can vouch for this drive, have one in my MBP and works amazingly. Is faster than OEM and I can't tell a difference on volume.

    The WD scorpio blues have been good, solid drives for me. The 250 gb will be at a good price point, because the 320s are the ones going into the MBPs right now. You could get by easily with a 160 or even a 120 if all you're doing is installing win7.
