MacBook Pro - Upgrade Hard Drive?

Howie Roxx

Hey LUG People,

I need some help finding a replacement drive for a MacBook Pro 2-1/2 years old. You fellas seem to have a lot more experience than I do.

Right now it has a 100 GB @ 7200 rpm internal SATA drive. I have outgrown it. I would like to replace it when "Snow Leopard" is released in Sept 2009 (I hope). Then reinstal Logic Studio 8 and take advantage of the dual core 64 bit technology that MAC OS X TIGER is not taking advantage of. I see that Apple has a 1 TB drive for $299 but the specs indicate that you need "Leopard" as your OS. I didn't upgrade to Leopard.

I have been using a WD eBook 500 gb eSATA drive for excess storage. It works fine, sometimes the access time is a tad slow. I cannot afford to buy a new MAC, so hopefully a NEW much larger hard drive will get me by for a few more years.

Thanks in advance :brkwl:
