    Nope, the largest 7200RPM drive for notebooks is 320GB.

    I would personally go with the Seagate simply because it has a longer warranty. The performance between the two should be near identical.

    MBP 2.3 Ghz 4GB RAM 860 GB SSD, iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive 1TB
    Aye what Kash said is true. I just bought the Seagate Momentus. I checked a few online retailers such as new egg and they were sold out. >_>"

    I ended up buying it at OWC which was cheaper. Yay! ^-^

    They just came out with the 500GB technology so it will take some time for it to get more speedy.

    yeah, i am going to do this as well instead of selling my MBP i think... i will give ebay a shot but if it is going for less than $1450 then i will just keep it. anyway, so about putting in a new hard drive...
    is there anything else i need to know as far as what comes with it? i am looking on ebay due to fiances and just want to make sure that items are coming with everything i need to install this...
    so, any of you guys who have bought a new one... what all came with it besides the hard drive itself (case, wires, etc)
