    I have been looking all over for a hard drive replacement that would be perfect for my Macbook Pro 13'.

    However, every time I think I've found the right hard drive, I lose my patience because it is only reviewed by someone with an older 13" or a 15"+17".

    Can anyone recommend me a good Hard Drive to upgrade to?

    I was looking for at least a 500gb, 5400 rpm (better battery life+ less noisy), and of course, it needs to fit in a MBP 13' 2010 edition.

    Any 2.5" SATA hard drive will work in your Mac. I would recommend checking out the Seagate Momentus XT.

    As mentioned, any 2.5" SATA should work fine. I have had good luck with the Seagate 500GB 7.2k rpm drives, the 5400rpm drives will work well also, maybe a little less vibration. Seagate also makes a 640GB 5400rpm drive that would work if you want a little more capacity. The Momentus XT mentioned above would also be a good choice for a little more performance.

    I have the Momentus 500GB 7.2k in my uMBP15 - pretty quiet and no vibration.
