    the drive needs to be 9.5mm. I haven't seen a 1TB yet that is less than 12mm

    Bought a brand new 13" MBP today and dropped a 1TB samsung 5400 in it. Works great.

    Unibody MacBooks and MacBook Pros can have 2.5" S-ATA HDDs with a maximum height of 12.5mm, the older pre-unibody MacBooks and MacBook Pros could only take 9.5mm.
    MRoogle could verify that.
