    Hii,

    I'm just wondering for an 11' Macbook Pro 15inch, is there a 7200RPM 1TB drive that I could buy somewhere ? And if I did purchase this , would it work in a Macbook Pro (2011) ?

    Largest 7200RPM drive for sale is 750GB (last time I checked, I could be wrong).

    I feel like I've seen a 1TB 7200 RPM drive but pretty sure it was 11 or 12mm. That won't fit in your computer. I believe 9.5mm is the max. Just wanted to put that out there so you don't find one and then realize it doesn't fit.

    Yup, it looks like only Seagate and Western Digital make a 750g 7,200 rpm drives. No one is selling a 7,200 rpm 1tb drive yet. Link.

    Well this sucks, I guess I'll just have to wait out for a while. I found a 1TB but it's only 5400RPM and that's not gonna cut it . Thanks for all the replies.

    In the hard drive bay, 12.5mm is the limit. In the optical bay, 9.5mm is the limit. This is for the '11 models, can't speak for prior models.

    There is even a cheap 1TB SSD, unfortunately it's 3.5"
    If only the MBP was 3.5" you could pick up a 1TB SSD for only $4k.
