Hello all,

I have a quick question on hard drive space. My wifes Macbook has a 160 gig hard drive that is nearly full. She is a student and carries all files all the time, and does really not want to have to start carrying an external drive around all the time. Samsung has a 2.5 inch 250 gig 5400 rpm serial ata hard drive for sale for $209 on newegg. So here is my question, does the macbook have a PC bios like limitation to hard drive space? I remember back in the day having to flash the bios on a pc to get it to recognize over 100 gigs, etc. Are you all aware of any limitations on hard drive space like this with the macbook?

Thanks for any advice!
