    Hey all,
    The 'How organised are your movies' thread got me to thinking about my iTunes collection.
    I got my Apple TV a couple of weeks ago, and think its brilliant.
    Ideally I would like to have all my DVD discs ripped to itunes, and then put the discs in the loft somewhere. This is where I have a problem. I have a Macbook Pro with 250GB hard drive, and only have 60 GB left.

    The most logical option would probably to buy a 1 or 2 TB external drive, and move my iTunes library there, but that sort of defeats the point in having a notebook, I like to carry my music and movies and TV shows around with me.

    So bigger internal hard drive appears to be the next solution. But as far as I can work out, the biggest internal drive for a Macbook Pro is 500GB, which will probably fill up pretty quick once I start ripping my TV series box sets too.

    Has anyone else had this conundrum, what did you do?

    [Edit] Typical, I post this and then find this link.

    This would fit a late 2009 13" macbook pro, right?
