Is it the Western Digital 6400AAKS?? The stock hdd??
AFAIK Apple uses a variety of different brands for their HDDs so unless this is specifically different cause it's the MP, I think it varies.
It's gotta be the WD6400AAKS since no one else makes a 640GB drive as far as I know.
edit: i stand corrected
my tb is a WD caviar black--
"WDC WD1001fals..." according to DU which is identical to my WD caviar black
Damn I was hoping it was the WD6400AAKS.

Wait I'm asking about the 640gb hdd models not the 1TB ones from Apple as a BTO.
Right, what I'm saying is that personally, I would have hoped it was a Caviar Black series (ending in ALS like the 1 TB model mentioned), not the Blue series (AAKS models). In other words, this would have been my stock 640 of choice:
Here's a good comparison of 640 GB HDs at X-bit (17 pages!):
To quote them: "Do you want the fastest drive for a home computer? Take a Western Digital Caviar Black." But they liked the Blue for a server, so depends on your use.
