    I am going to upgrade the hard drive in my white Macbook to a 320GB drive and I am having difficulty choosing between a Fujitsu and a WD drive. I've had problems with using external WD drives with macs before but not sure about the internal ones.

    Which would you suggest?

    Thanks

    I remember buying mine for US$159.99 last year. That's cheap!

    I'm not sure what a good price is but I like my 250 WD Scorpio. I have several externals and have had great service from them. I bought a 250 WD Passport external. I then cloned it with my MB via Superduper free app. Cracked the cases and put it in along with a 4gb crucial ram kit. I then put the 160 that I removed into the Passport housing for another drive.
