    I got a unibody mbp with the standard 5400rpm 250gb hdd. I just bought a 320gb 5400 rpm WD scorpio blue for my ps3, but now I'm thinking of putting it in my laptop. Is it worth the hassle?

    I have a 320gb external so I can backup all my osx stuff, but will I be able to back up my bootcamp partition? Will there be any real performance boost, or battery life decrease?

    Your going to get 70 extra GB which isnt really a lot, i wouldnt bother, but it is easy to put in. However with an external HD you may as well continue with your original plan and put the 320 in the PS3 :)

    You can find out how to fit it at www.IFIXIT.com if you do decide to put it in your MBP
