I want to upgrade my hdd in my MBP. I have 120 now and want at least 200. What hdd should I buy? Any suggestions.

Also, will apple install it without voiding my warranty?

If So, anyone know what it would cost?


Thanks for any info.

What is the warranty issue with the MBP? Will apple install it?

I've asked and apple said they won't install it. Also I would assume if you open up your macbook the warranty could get voided(def not sure though).

I have a 200GB 7200rpm travelstar sitting in the box too. I am going to upgrade the HDD, OS and Logic (Studio) in one swoop.

I am trying to convince myself that I do not need to get a second HDD in the optical drive slot...

I thought that didn't work on the MacBook and MacBook Pro since the area to put the drive is only 9.5mm (ok, maybe 10) tall and that is the same height as the hard drive itself.
