Hi, new to this forum and to macs. I will be starting a Ph.D. next April and am thinking of leaving PCs behind and buying a 17 inch MBP, however the current max size HD that they ship with is 120GB. What is the general concensus that by next April they'll be bigger internal drives available for the 17inch? (I'm talking upto 200GB here). Even if Apple don't ship larger drives as an option how about buying one yourself? I tend to get through HDD space very quickly and never find it to be enough. I have externals sure, but need to carry quite a lot around too. Thanks, kilo delta uniform mike 8. p.s. I know there have been some similar questions along this line before but they were a while ago and things have moved on.
