    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

    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.
