ok i was looking into HD upgrade for a MBP 17" and i work at best buy we got these Western Digital ones in last week i found this one 7200rpm 1TB which it says for WIN/ MAC but i also saw this one IntelliSeek 1TB it says only WIN on the side of the box (could i use it for mac though?) but i liked the Intelli one b/c it states "WD has reduced power consumption by up to 40 percent compared to competitors' drives with the combination of WD's IntelliSeek™, IntelliPark™, and IntelliPower™ technologies."

just wondering how fast would intelliseek be compared to 7200rpm and if it saved that much power would it matter?

what are your thoughts

Sorry, but a 3.5" drive won't fit into a MBP. You need a 2.5" drive!

Pretty much any 2.5" should work, you might want to double check online for compatibility because I know some 2.5" drives are slightly larger and won't fit inside certain laptops.

The latest 17" Macbook pros will accept an 11mm thickness drive most laptops will only accept a 9.5mm drive. Virtually ALL available 2.5" drives are 9.5mm thick other than the odd one like the 500Gb drive that is currently available (which is 11mm).
