    Does anyone know the brand and model number that Apple uses for their 200GB 7200 RPM BTO order? You can find this information in About this Mac>More Info>Serial-ATA (SATA). Thanks for your help!

    Good luck...I asked this in three different threads yesterday and no one seems to want to take about 30 seconds to find out :confused:

    It is probably the Hitachi NBHD 200G|HITC 7K 16M SATA

    2 brands in fact

    I was just reading about those drives and i can't remember the websites but i found 2 places indicating that they use both Hitachi and Toshiba. Its a toss up, whatever apple feels like putting in your machine is what you get... apparently there is no way of knowing what one you'll get.

    Someone else looked it up and said theirs is a FUJITSU MHY2200BH. So neither Hitachi or Toshiba.

    It would be nice if a few more people would check their system profiles so we can find out for sure. There is a big variation in benchmarks on a lot of these drives and I want to know if I should open my brand new MBP or just get the 5400 model if the performance gain is negligible.

    It could be that adding this makes it a custom BTO and many users including myself are still waiting for them to be shipped.

    Yep, waiting on mine to be shipped as well with the 7,200 RPM drive. I'll let you know when it gets here next week...
