    thinking about replacing my HD but, am having trouble understanding what drives are appropriate or will work. I have a MBP 17", 2.33ghz, 3gb ram... am pretty sure this drive is more than acceptable but just trying to double check.

    thanks-


    ..also what exactly does it mean when the HD says 16MB cache or 32 MB cache, I am confused on the definitions I have been reading.


    thanks guys-

    That will work, but allow me to let you in on a cheaper drive with the same specs. A seagate 320gb 16mb cache @ 7200 RPM's is 79.99 on newegg as well.
