Hi. I have a 15" 1.83mhz MBP core duo circa 2006 which finally died. I took it to the Apple store and was kindly told that my hard drive is dead. I'd prefer at this time to just replace/upgrade my hd than purchase a new computer. My questions are the following: 1) What's the best, reliable kind/brand of hard drive I can get for around $200 or so? Id like to improve the overall speed of my computer while I'm at it. Given the cost constraint, I'd b ok with one as low as an 80gig. 2) Is there an ssd drive that's worth getting for my model? I imagine the benefit/gain of having an ssd with my SATA I bus would be all that value added. Am I wrong? Thx a bunch!
