    Cool Upgrading the Hard Drive
    Hi all,
    i found a Western Digital - My Passport Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive at bestbuy for under $150

    Western Digital - My Passport Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive - Intense Blue - WDMEB500TN


    can anybody tell me if this is compatible with a MacBook mine is model A1181
    if that helps.

    what I am wanting to do is open the WD portable HDD enclosure and swap the HDD with the one in my MacBook. Has anyone done this? ans is this posible?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    Macbook Pro 15" 2ghz/2GB/250gb/SD - White Macbook 2.16ghz/2.5GB/250GB/SD
    Why not just buy this - Western Digital 500GB - Newegg.com

    Cheaper too! - Yes this should work in your Macbook.

    Lol, I was going to get a terabyte installed in mine, but it was too big (the largest they could physically go was a 500gb), so I got an external one. The wireless ones are supposed to be as slow as mess, as they use a wireless signal to transfer info, instead of a wireless internet network. At least, that is what I have heard.
