    Has anyone who has installed the Seagate 500GB 7200RPM...

    Had any issues with the free fall protection or g-force when installed on a uni-body macbook pro?

    I ordered the one without the free fall profection or g-force and i was curious if i should exchange it for the "G" model...

    Has anyone encountered problems with either type of this drive?

    I've been doing some reading on some other forums where people have been some difficulties with this drive and uni-body macbook pros. Some have mentioned a clicking sound once the drive is installed.

    I will be installing this on a i5 15.4 2.4 Ghz Macbook Pro Released in the second week of April...

    Any Advice?

    I just wanna make sure everything plays nice with eachother...

    You want the one without the free fall sensor.

    Otherwise, you should not have any issues.
