can unibody macbook pro owners with the 7200 rpm HDD share? thanks
fyi, all brands are more or less the same
apple uses the manufacturer that gives them the best deal. they dont say only use seagate or western digital
I have the 2.93 unibody 15" and mine is a 7200rpm Hitachi
oo thank you very much. Is the drive quiet??
yep, I know they're more or less the same but i know some drivers are quieter than others which is what I'm interested in
Dude do a search there's tons of threads on this:
My 17" 2.93 CTO came with a seagate 7200rpm drive.
thanks ITGUY Is there a consensus that the Western digital scorpio black is the top performing drive? because that's the impression I get from reading other threads
My 2.93 UMBP 17" came with a seagate 7200rpm. I also had Hitachi 7200rpm and don't see any difference in speed.
My 2.66GHz 15" UMBP has a Seagate drive. I could have sworn the first one I had (this is a replacement) had a Hitachi, although I could be mistaken.
Can't tell any difference in speed or noise.
My 15" 2.53 UMBP came with a crappy 5400rpm Hitachi drive. Yanked it out right away and replaced it with an Intel SSD. Didn't even bother powering up the notebook with it installed
i'll let ya'all know what i get. i'll be happy with a seagate or hitachi though it'll cool if i got a WD. Never had a WD before.
FWIW, i just put a 320gb Hitachi 7200rpm in my laptop and it is without a doubt louder than the stock Hitachi 5400rpm. BUT its not that loud and no big deal. If i never had a 5400rpm before, i would probably think this was pretty much silent.
Honestly, i haven't really noticed any improvement in performance. *shrug*
