    Its a friends birthday. He has wanted more storage for a while on his Macbook(Early 09). Is this a good hard drive to get him you all think? 500GB Seagate Momentus 7200RPM Also I am versed and swapping HD's but he isn't. If I set him up with all the tools needed and a copy of Carbon Copy Cloner, think he could pull it off himself? Or should I install the gift for him as well?

    Thanks all

    I recommend Seagate Momentus XT W/OUT AN ENCLOSURE. It'll say "bare drive" in most cases. If he wants more storage, then go with Scorpio Black or even a VelociRaptor.
