    Looking for a +1TB drive, problem is I don't know which one(s) would fit my mid 2012 Aluminum MBP! A lot of numbers there LOL! I'm looking for a non-SSD ones; I'm terribly sorry, I'm not into these stuff!

    Thanks in advance!

    I talked to them and they said this should work:

    But that what the description says at the bottom of the page:

    IMPORTANT OWC NOTES:

    1- Only the MacBook White Unibody Late 2009 / Mid 2010, 13" or 15" MacBook Pro Unibody (2008-2012), and 17" MacBook Pro (2006-2011) models can accommodate a 12.5mm tall drive. For PC owners consult system specifications for maximum allowable drive height before attempting to install. (See compatibility tab for more info)

    2- Drive not compatible for use in MacBook or MacBook Pro Optical Bays via Data Doubler. 9.5mm Required for Optical Bay.

    Thanks for the help spink, I really appreciate it a lot!

    I have 2 questions though.

    1. The bigger the better for me so I found a 1.5TB one but it's 12.5mm so I think it's not going to fit right?

    2. What is the data cache? For example "64MB Data Cache."
