    Thats a 3.5" drive.. you need to look for 2.5" Notebook/laptop drives.

    Dec540, No it IS a 2.5" drive fitted into a 3.5" carrier !

    BUT

    it is too tall to fit in anything other than the 17" macbook pro, it is 10000rpm not 1000rpm, it is very noisy, it uses far more power than a normal laptop drive and it creates so much heat that it needs that massive heat sink. Also if you remove the heat sink you void the warranty.

    Probably one of the 200Gb 7200rpm drives, my macbook pro has a Hitachi but there are also similar drives from seagate and poss samsung.
