    Recently my wifes MBP died and I'm assuming its the drive, before I order the drive I was wondering can i buy any kind of SATA notebook drive for her laptop or do I need to keep it at a certain buffer rate or transmission speed.

    Im a PC person, if it was a PC I would have it fixed by now

    Please let me know if you need anymore info I can get that for you

    Any 2.5" S-ATA HDD with a maximum height of 9.5mm will work.
    There is no need to consider buffer size or transmission rate.

    what spinnerlys said.

    I replaced the 80gb hd in my wife's macbook with 320gb and it still runs like a charm.

    Go to (owc) and select your wife's MB. From there, you'll have many options. Changing a hard drive in a MB couldn't be easier.

    already went to buy a new drive 320GB SATA 7200 RPM for 60 bux not bad, already set her laptop to default just waiting for her to bring home snow leopard so I can finish it for her.

    It was pretty easy to swap the drive

    Thank You everyone
