    My harddrive recently gave out in my year and a half old white macbook. I was wondering if anybody had any references to good hard drives or hard drives that have a history of doing well with the white MacBook.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    His is a year and half old, which means unless he bought apple care for it, it won't be covered.

    500gb for $90:

    I never understood why people want to install such puny drive replacements. If you're going through the trouble... just install the maximum size there is and get it over with.

    And as far as reliablitity for any certain brand... I've used them all and the failure rate for any brand seems to depend on which disgruntled Shanghai sweatshop worker assembled it.

    I replaced my Apple Fujitsu hard drive with a 320 GB 7200 rpm Fujitsu drive. It cost me about $80. Computer runs a bit faster now, although the battery life is shorter.

    I agree that it's good to get a solid replacement instead of a small drive that is stop-gap. I am very much enjoying more space right now.
