    Hi everybody, I would like to upgrade my internal (320) hard disk... It will be good to buy a 128 SSD and make afusion drive with ssd and the original disk or is better to buy a single disk like WD black? which are your suggestions? I already upgraded to 8 Gb Ram, I will use in everyday work... Of course I don't want to waste a lot of money!!!!

    got a 1tb wd black last year for $99, at 7200 rpm it makes a big difference for very little money. otherwise, spend more to get a better cpu and gpu

    Is there a 1TB version? The largest I can find is 750GB.

    What about the Seagate Momentus?

    I've heard good things about the Seagate but IMO the WD Black is still the best. The Seagate and Hitachi are probably similar.

    If you want WD quality look at HGST, which is owned by WD. They make the fastest 1TB drive out there with SATA III and 32MB cache at 7200rpm. Great drive.

    They are Hitachi drives but owned by WD. Which one? I provided links to two in my above post.

    The first one you provided is what I was referring to. HGST = Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.
