    Western Digital 320GB Scorpio. Pretty good price per GB.

    And yes use MRoogle, and they only have 1TB drives for desktops. 500GB is tops on the notebook.

    Does replacing the HDD void the warranty

    I did a bunch of research because I was contemplating this upgrade as well. Hope this helps you :).

    For myself, I figured that doing an internal HDD upgrade wasn't for me. I'd rather buy a LaCie external 500GB/1TB FW800 drive to run as a scratch disk for Final Cut work. Replacing an internal is not worth the trouble to me, but if you decide to, it's not that bad of a process.
