    Specs:
    2009 Macbook White 2Ghz 2Gig RAM 120Gig HDD
    Upgrading Macbook White HDD
    I am planing on upgrading my HDD to this one:

    Seagate Momentus 7200.4 320GB 2.5" SATA 7200RPM - Upgrade Your Mac

    Any-one had any experience of this drive or this retailer?

    They mention on the sight that 7200 drives run hotter than 5400 drives. Is this a problem?

    The drive you chose is a good one. As far as heating is concerned with 7200 RPM drives, I haven't noticed any heating with mine nor is it any noisier than the original stock Hitachi 5400 RPM model. I say go for it.

    Regards.

    A 7200RPM drive is definitely a worthwhile upgrade. You'll notice the difference almost immediately.

    13'' Macbook Pro 2.26 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GB 1067 Mhz DDR3 500 GB 7200rpm HD
    I concur. I have the 500gb version.

    As for the heat issue, I am not sure because I do get a little heat however I blame that mainly because I have a full body SPEK case and it is always on my lap when I am laying down on the couch. So it is not properly breathing. But yea it is deff a good upgrade.

    Will changing the HDD have any effect on my warranty?
