    I have a black Macbook and I recently decided to upgrade the hard drive so I ordered a Samsung 1TB drive and when I went to install it I realized it was too thick so I returned it. I purchased a 500GB WD drive and it fit fine. But I am wanting to know if I can go any bigger than that? I read on one forum that the biggest drive you can get is 750GB... Wondering if anyone can verify that.

    That is the case presently. The highest you ca get in there is the 750 GB unit. No 1TB unit is made that will fit.

    chipz is right. 750GB is the largest they go right now. Although the 1TB is a 2.5" form factor drive meant for laptops, it has a higher drive height than every other 2.5" drive (12.5 mm compared to 9.5 mm). As such, it only fits in certain versions of the MacBook Pro line.
