    I've tried searching, honest, but maybe I didn’t use the right terms... the disk has failed on my 2007 MacBook 2.16, and I thought I might as well fit a bigger one when replacing it. Anybody know what the maximum size is it’ll take? And is there anywhere I can find this sort of thing out (eg on the Apple site) to save taking up forum space?

    Thanks

    Uh, nope.

    There is no feasible size limit. By the time drives exist that surpass the limit, we will no longer be using SATA as a connector or 64-bit operating systems, so the limit is moot.

    Thanks both - yes, this makes sense, but I was thinking more in terms of a BIOS (or whatever Macs use) limit I suppose. Anyway, I was only thinking of maybe 250/320, or 400 at the outside, so I guess that answers it one way of the other.

    Is there anywhere I can educate myself about this kind of thing? I come from an Intel/Windows background...
