    As I'm about to purchase my 2009 MBP unibody I want to upgrade the HDD myself as I've posted before on however will either of the WD scorpio black models work? it comes with or without the freefall sensor? will either be compatible? I read on some retail sites that one won't work with the computer.

    Don't get the freefall sensor in the drive. Just don't.

    The Sudden Motion Sensor in the MBP does the same thing as the free fall sensor in the drive. So you don't need to get one.

    There have been some reported conflicts with the drives with the anti shock function, so best to avoid it
