    My hard drive went out on my macbook (late 07 model black). So while replacing my hard drive i am looking to upgrade too. but i don't know what hard drive to put in it. i was looking at many different ones but i heard that it can not be bigger than 9.5mm and that knocks out the hard drive that i was looking at.

    i really would like something like it. does anyone have and suggestions?

    What on earth are you talking about? What exactly are the "amazon dimensions" and why do you think they're wrong? :confused: That is a 2.5" drive with 9mm height and everything on the Amazon link you provided is correct.

    You can actually get up to a 500 GB drive that runs at 7200 RPM ($105 on Newegg) or a 640 GB that runs at 5400 RPM ($120 on Newegg). Both are cheaper than the 320 GB you’re looking at on Amazon.

    A larger drive at the same speed is actually probably going to be faster, because the data is stored more densely on the platters.

    Amazon lists it at 0.5" (12.5mm) high for some reason.
