    i bought a MBP in september with a 120gb hard drive (compared to 60gb in my old ibook). i thought that'd do me just fine since i already have an external hard drive where i back things up and store my RAW camera files. in hindsight, i think i should have opted for the 160gb hard drive.
    but apparently the hard drives are a lot easier to replace on newer models compared to the old ibooks. so i was thinking of upgrading to a 200gb or so drive. any suggestions? i would prefer something that's fast, reliable, and i guess as cool running as possible (MBP gets hot enough as is!).

    any suggestions? reasons for not doing it?

    i found these two on new egg:

    i don't run parallels, play games, or anything like that. just edit photos, use email, word processing/presentations, surf the net, stuff like that.
