    Just put the WD Scorpio Blue 500GB in my MacBook and I'm almost about to go crazy on what to do with all that space. Any suggestions?

    lo, don't waste the space, that's what i thought when i first got my 250, now I am always struggling for it not to fillup. I ll get a 500 next year and im sure in a couple of months I'll have the same problem...

    Actually, just enjoy having room to grow as you accumulate more data.

    I just got a 400GB Scorpio blue and I'm filling it up slowly with movies (not porn...) and apps.

    500GB isn't nothing, few movies, some songs, you'll wish you got 1TB.

    thats a double negative which means it is something, which implies its enough =D

    "500GB isn't anything" would be accurate.. but im just bored =]

    and btw, that 500gb drive will do just fine, congrats on the drive

    i just bought a Seagate momentus 500 GB HD 5400 rpms

    and let me tell you that's not gonna be enuff for me :(

    unfortunately there is no 1 TB 7200 ( or better rpm) drive out at the moment so this will have to do for now cause i don't want to carry around an external that's for sure

    1TB 2.5" 7200RPM won't be out for a longgggg time. They dont even have a 5400RPM version.

    get newsgroup for 1 month and 1tb will be a too little.

    i could fill up 500gb in less than 2 weeks with usenet.

    Maybe a year.5 for a 5400RPM, but not a 7200RPM.

    I can bet that when you do that, you will look at those files once and never look at them again.
