    I have a 15 inch MBP and want to replace my 120 GB HD with a 320 one. Where can I find one that works? And what other products do I need to switch hard drives without losing my data?

    Do a quick search, there are lots of threads about this. I'm a fan of buying the WD Passport, cloning with CCC (or SuperDuper), liberating the drive from the enclosure, installing, and placing the original drive in the enclosure to use for backups or just portable extra space.

    I've done it with a 160GB and a 320GB drive in my MB.

    Any sata drive should work.

    Great idea with the enclosure and whatnot, I just replaced my 160 with a 320 as well, but just bought the bare drive.
