    I just got a MacBook yesterday and would like to order a bigger hard drive today. Would some of you throw some suggestions my way please? Thanks!

    I don't know how big you want your drive but I got this one:

    Pretty fast compared to the old one I had inside and pretty cheap too.

    Nothing's wrong with it but kingston does get some bad press at times, if it were me i'd go crucial

    My hard drive arrived today and darn if I didn't order the WRONG one. :mad: I just ordered the correct one and hope that they will allow me to return this one. What a mistake! :eek:

    Y'all can get an empty one of those external drive cases easily and cheaply enough (firewire preferred for Apple imho, get one that can do both FW and USB if you want to use it with Windows machines too) and use it as an external store. A very good idea to get something like that set up and use with time machine to back up your important data.
