    Hi,

    Is it possible to put 7200 rpm hard drive on new aluminum macbooks?

    If yes, will it have huge heat effect on the machine.

    I really find it very cool ( in temperature wise ) and want to keep it that way.


    Thank you:apple:

    Yes, it is easy to do with a small phillips screwdriver and a set of torx drivers.

    As for overheating, it depends on the drive. I've got a WD Scorpio Black, and it runs just fine. No noise, heat or vibration. This thing boots up and launches applications noticably quicker.

    I upgraded mine to a Hitachi 320GB 7K320 drive. Works flawlessly!
