    I plan on replacing my internal 2.5 inch hard drive on my macbook with a larger one.

    I am looking for some recommendations on brands that are good and what to stay away from.

    By the way, does anyone know what brand Apple uses in their computers? That would probably be the best choice since they they are the best computers in the world.

    Thanks

    Tom's hardware did a review on the most recent 7200 drives like the seagate 7200.4 and the wd scorpio black. The difference is negligible. You may notice a difference in vibration, especially with a unibody mb.
