    I'm partial to Seagate over Hitachi. They just came out with a 160GB so maybe a 200GM will follow soon.

    I like Hitachi over Seagate, they are usually faster, oh well. According to Seagate their 200GB HD is still some time off.

    I just contacted Apple about BTO on a 17" MBP C2D (Napa) with 7200RPM/200MB HDD, but they don't have info on that yet. I hope Apple can ship the latest revision of 15"/17" MBP C2D (Napa) with 7K200.

    Hitachi hard drives are old IBM technology, so more importantly they're the most reliable hard drives out there.

    Now thats something I want.

    Makes the BTO options a no brainer as long as your wallet can cope.
