    Hi,

    My macbook had a 60 gig hard drive, which I swapped for a 120 about a year ago... now I realized that I only have about 12 gigs of space left.. 60 gigs of my HD is used up my Itunes stuff... SOOO i wanna buy another bigger better badder hard drive, but I don't know which one will fit... I heard there's a new 320gig available... does anyone have experience with a larger drive and can recommend one that will fit.

    Thanks,

    J

    I believe you can plug any drive that's 2.5" SATA. The stock drive is 5400RPM so putting a 7200RPM may decrease battery time a bit...

    There have been numerous threads on the WD Passport that uses the 320G SATA drive. I got one a few weeks ago and put it in my MBP and have been very happy with it.

    You'll need to make sure the drive is a 9.5mm thick drive, and it uses SATA. You can get drives up to 500 gigs. The size is up to you, and the speed as the previous poster mentioned. NOTE however, that larger 5400rpm drives can be faster than the smaller 7200rpm drives, so going for the larger drive might be the better option.
