    So,

    iv heard and searched the forums and apparently this is the best HD to get for the macbook 13", with the largest space and speed. but just wondering whats the best website to buy it from that has stock and will ship it in a decent speed?

    apparently alot of people are getting annoyed most sites have no stock or is shipping late and if shipped are very slow.

    i live in Canada Ontario ( toronto) whats the best site to buy it from?

    I would Google search for the hard drive to find out what retailer offers the best shipping and pricing to your area.

    I've never used DC, but it looks like they're based in Richmond, BC, so you could expect about a week to a week and a half, hopefully no longer :p

    Check Canada Computers... they typically have good prices and they're local to you. I used to go to them before I had access to NCIX in Van.

    Compusa.com aka tigerdirect.com have them in stock. Not sure how much shipping would be to Canada but the price in US dollars is $129

    oops. looks like they ran out today. they had them yesterday:(

    I'm in Windsor, I ordered mine from NCIX, and it took the better part of a month to ship (although I guess I ordered it before launch). Being in Toronto though, there are likely more local places to buy it from, so you could save on shipping that way. That said, the drive is in high demand right now so you might see it come in and out of stock consistently for a bit.
