    Hi.

    Two questions:
    - What brand and model are the new 500GB and 750GB drives in the new 2011 MBP13?
    - How loud are they when you listen to them in the quiet room?

    I'm asking because I'd like to upgrade my 250GB Toshiba drive in 2010 MPB13 (which is TOTALLY silent at all times - I can hear 2000rpm fan over the drive!) to either 500GB or 750GB in the future and I wouldn't want a louder drive.
    I once bought a WD Scorpion blue 500GB, but sold it the next day cause it was notably louder (couldn't stand it - it was louder than the fan).

    (Could it be that Toshiba is quieter because of its "SilentSeek" technology?)

    Mine came with a Toshiba 750GB 5400RPM drive. Sorry I do not know how it sounds; I never used it.

    My 750GB 5400RPM hard drive was a Toshiba. I replaced it with a 240GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD and use the stock drive in an external enclosure. It seems to run pretty quietly but I can't comment on speed.
