    i currently have the 250 GB 5400 hd in my macbook pro 13 inch but i need more space. What is the best hard drive to get and is there a 1TB HDD for laptops yet?

    SSDs are fastest but have lower capacity and cost more. Biggest HD available which goes into MBP is 750GB

    personally i would love the 640GB linked to by Buskape but could not go back to the slower 5400RPM's or 8MB Cache

    here is a 500GB 7200RPM w/16MB Cache and free shipping :)

    i choose to go with the WD Black 320GB 7200RPM because it continues to get rave reviews and i have several of these and they run great.

    The best HD in terms of speed is the Intel X25-M.

    Trick question, ehh? Gotta be the one that works!:p



    No 1TB 2.5" drives yet but if you forego the optical, you can do an optibay kind of thing with multiple drives.
