    Hi All,

    First post! Sorry if it's a repeat but I'm relatively new to forums. So I'm updating my 13"MBP(first thunderbolt model)hard drive.. I don't have a job right now so I can't shell out big bucks for something awesome even though I should. I found this online and after doing some google searches saw that it got some good reviews. Does anyone here have any experience with it? I have upgraded my RAM to 8GB so I have some experience with doing this.. but I really don't want to ******* up my mbp lol... upgrading to bootcamp to windows for visual basic.. been using this 1gb hp pav dv6000 which is hell to say the least... thanks for any help/tips! :)

    p.s. here's the link

    Why are you buying what is essentially an external hard drive disassembled? All you need is a bare 2.5" hard drive. Newegg.com has hundreds of them.

    Because it comes with the screwdrivers(I have no tools really I threw them away when I moved without thinking) and I can turn my internal 320gb into a portable drive for extra music. I also lost my old hard drive when I moved so I figured it would come in handy.. I heard both good and bad things about this particular drive

    You can buy an internal HD for ~100 at Best Buy, Newegg, etc., and you can buy a #0 screwdriver and the Torx #6 for less than $10 at Lowes or any hardware store.
