    I'm thinking about getting a bigger internal HD for my 15 inch macbook pro. Currently 250GB, want 750gb. I have Macbook Pro 15 inch unibody A1286.

    Will it fit?

    And will there be more heat coming from a larger drive? If so is it advisable to avoid a larger drive because of heat issues?

    As you have a Unibody MacBook Pro, you can put a 12.5mm high 2.5" HDD into it, which will make a maximum capacity of 1TB available for you.

    MRoogle might offer an answer or dozens for the second question, as the HDD question comes up every day or half or quarter or less.

    That is good news, thanks. I will search further regarding heat issues, thanks for the link.
