    I got MBP so recently with 120GB HDD and I need find more info about HDD upgrade, I'm just want upgrade into 200GB or 250GB to make enough room for games from Windows via Bootcamp, plus I don't want USB HDD because of low bandwidth and low transfer rate than SATA does.

    Does Apple will offers upgrade the HDD at their store? I don't know about how to upgrade the HDD by myself from MBP because I'm afraid about void the warranty if it does screw up.

    I was means if use USB HDD then would cause longer to load the games due low transfer rate and low bandwidth than SATA does.

    So, you could get a Firewire 800 SATA drive enclosure and pop a $120 500 gig SATA drive in it. That's what I did. OWC (MacSales) sells SATA enclosures that work over FW400, FW800, USB and eSATA connector.

    I'm not even sure they are talking about an enclosure?
