    Still running your machine on a tiny 160Gb~500Gb drive?
    Well here's some good news...

    [​IMG]

    In case you didn't know, WD has recently announced it has started shipping it's new Scorpio Blue 1TB 2.5" HD's (model WD10TEVT), suitable for your MBP 17" Aluminium system only, doesn't fit the 15" or the 13"

    incase there are any unibody reader are here.. There's a very good reason as to why it doesn't work on the newer Unibodiy machines...

    Get your's now!! Only $243.05 :eek::eek:
    Still cheaper than a SSD at 1TB!

    That website you linked is for a 3.5" drive, not a 2.5" notebook drive. You can expect this drive to run you about $250 once it's actually on the market. The 750GB version just made it on Newegg's site yesterday. ($180)

    Sorry, I blame anandtech for the bad link...

    Non of those sites are any good for me, I'm in Japan... Leader in Technology but when it comes to large HD's we're the last to get them! :(

    Actually I searched "WD10TEVT" on this site.. and it's not mentioned anywhere... Now you'd think it'll be there!
