    I want to upgrade my macbook hard drive to a bigger one. I have a Samsung HM320JI with 320 GB but it's too noisy. The original hitachi is much more silent.

    Can you recommend a silent hard drive to upgrade a late 2008 macbook?

All produced some noise, but the Hitachi was by far the most quiet for idle and load. I am very picky about sound and sit in my bedroom at night and want the least noise I can get. If you want quiet than you want this HD:
