What hard drives does apple use in their MBPs? Are there any benchmarks? How does their 7200rpm compare to a Seagate Momentus 7200.2? Should I just ask for the apple 7200 hd when ordering? Or replace it after I get it?
I haven't purchased a MBP yet. It is cheaper to buy the drive separate from a 3rd party and replace it yourself. But if Apple uses a high performing 7200rpm HD then it may not be worth the hassle. If I can find out exactly what HD they use, I can compare the benchmarks and decide.
