    I just purchased a new 15" MBP @ Apple Store. I was wondering if I can still upgrade the HD to 7200rpm via Apple Store (+$50.00)? Or is my only option to return the notebook and purchase a BTO online? Thanks, esoin

    Save the 5400 rpm drive and get hitachi's 7200rpm 500gb drive imo

    I hear good things about the hitachi drive.

    Actually, I want to upgrade to an SSD eventurally and use the 500gb in the superdrive bay (still weighing the pros/cons of losing the cdrom).

    I just thought +$50 wasn't too bad a deal for a faster HD. This notebook is snappy though, so it's not a deal breaker.
