    Hi all,

    so simply i was wondering if there is a limit to the size HDD i can put in my laptop. I have the SE one; aluminium unibody 2.4ghz 4GB RAM, currently got a WD 320GB drive but wanted to know if a 1TB would work fine or are there likely to be problems because its so huge for a laptop?

    I'd just like the space because i have so many videos and it's my main computer but if it's going to cause hassle il leave it :D

    Thanks

    Yep, a 1TB drive would work, just make sure it's 2.5" with 12.5mm height.

    Any 9.5mm drive will fit. Currently the 1tb drives are all 12mm, so they will not fit. 750gb is largest capacity 9.5mm drive currently available.


    I know samsung(I believe it was samsung) just announced a 9.5mm 1tb drive, but it is not available for sale yet.


    Edit: The two posters above me say a 12mm drive will fit. I thought they didn't in the MacBooks.

    12.5mm HDDs will fit all Unibody MBs and MBPs.
