    I have a macbook pro 13" 2.53 with 500GB HDD upgraded with latest firmware. Now every like 5 mins or it depends on the process maybe the system lag for 2 seconds like hang with a sound in the HDD when you have bad sector. But I found its OS X problem and not HDD or Hardware issue, cause I tried installing Vista and Windows 7 on it, it works hell smoothly. I only have this lag when I use OS X (Snow Leopard currently)

    Any idea ppl? any patch? is it well knows issue?

    Open up activity monitor (found within Applications->Utilities), sort by cpu and make sure you're showing all processes.

    I have no such issue as you described so there's a program that's sucking up the cpu on you.

    Check your partition scheme of the osx partition. I suspect you are using a wrong one.

    I would guess you
    - installed new drive
    - formatted new drive (and did not set the partition scheme)
    - thinks its os x problem but it's actually user problem

    Different partitions, so you cannot compare disk problems between Mac OS X & Windows 7. Each OS is accessing different parts of the disk.

    I've got to say. I have the same issue. Seems that windoze almost runs better than OSX on my mbp 13.

    seems also that my random clicking hard drive stops, and runs silent under vista too....

    meh.......
