    Hey guys,
    I have a 2006 MacBook Pro and it has a 100GB hard drive. I want to upgrade to a 500GB that I saw at Future Shop. There were ones by Western Digital and Seagate. Any preferences between the two? Also I believe it's a 2.5" but i'm not 100% sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    No.
    Look at the guide I linked to on how to do it properly.
