I just saw the new 1 TB HDD from western digital came out today and it seems to be pretty thick. has anyone put a 12.5 mm drive into their machines? Or will it fit in the older MBP's with no problem. I Have a Mid-2007 17" MBP Heres the Link to the drive.

I'd also like to know if a 12.5mm hard drive will fit into a MBP (early 2008 model)

Probably not as it is a different size to the standard 2.5" laptop HDD. See this link from WD:-

Western Digital releases 1TB laptop hard drive | Crave - CNET

The standard 2.5" laptop drive is 9.5mm.
