    What is the largest HDD for MBP
    I saw that some people are putting 400GB and 500GB hard drives in 17inch MBP. Does anyone know if this is possible with the 15inch version as well? I know alot are doing a 320GB with luck, but just wondering if something bigger was available yet?

    Black Macbook C2D 2GHz 3GB RAM 250GB HD iPhone 4 iPad 3G
    The largest drive available for the 15" Macbook Pro is the 500GB 5400RPM drive by Samsung. If you want a 7200RPM drive, then 320GB is the largest one currently available.

    It's not THAT big of a difference, but it is slightly noticeable, as in OS X will boot faster, as will applications. As for whether that's worth $50, that's completely up to you. Some people want the bleeding edge in performance, others are content waiting an extra couple of seconds.

    7200 rpm has slightly less battery life as well.
