    In the next couple weeks Seagates new notebook hard drives are gonna be released bumping up the 7200rpm series of drives to 250 & 320gb

    I plan on getting one to replace my current drive that i have sitting in my mbp

    My question is this .. there will be two types of each drive .. a regular version and a G-Force Protection version .. At a local store the price difference is only like 15$ so its nothing outrageous to get the G-Force version .. I was just curious if it matters .. Can the MBP's take advantage of the Ge-Force protection offered by these drives ??

    I'm not planning on dropping and testing my MBP ;)

    MBP's have a Sudden Motion Sensor which shuts the hard drive down in case of a drop. Not too sure about the extra G-Force protection.
