    So, I'm looking to upgrade the hard drive in my MacBook Pro again. I'm looking at a 250GB drive (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...203EMJQ7GJOWO&me=&seller=&colid=2695U510HU8YF)but I want to have enough space, do you think that will be enough or should I splurge and get a bigger hard drive.
    This isn't pressing, I don't expect to upgrade for another couple months, but I just want to get an idea of what I should be getting.

    Samsung's supposed to have a 500 gig drive out this month.

    I googled that, it seems a bit outside my price range. I don't really want to spend too much more than $100.

    Cool! Any word on how much it's supposed to cost? If it's not too much I may save up the extra $$ to get it.

    that samsung 500 gigger will obviously cost more than the 320gb WD, it'll drop in price after it's out for a while i suppose.

    Most likely when the 500 GB drive comes out we will see a sale or a price drop in the 320 GB drive because it wouldn't be considered the lastest and greatest anymore.

    Well, it's been a month and I have still not seen anyplace to buy this drive. I desperately need a HD upgrade from my 160gig and I Want to get as big as I can. Has anyone seen the 500gig for sale?

    A friend of mine claims it's coming out at $299, which seems decent.
