    Question Upgrading the Hardrive on my 2007 Macbook
    Hi All,

    Looking to upgrade the internal hard drive o My Macbook. I'd really like to put a 1tb one in, but can't seem to find one with the right dimensions.

    Is this possible? Anyone any good recommendations for a suitable hard drive? Or am I better going for something a bit smaller?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Specs:
    15" MBP, 2.5GHz i7, 750GB, 6770M 1GB, iPad 3, iPhone 4, custom PC
    er, i think WD and Samsung do 750GB ones. i dont believe there are any 1tb 9mm 2.5" drives out yet.

    Rob,

    As you found...at the moment there are no 1tb drives (that I'm aware of) with the proper dimensions. The largest currently available (that will fit) is something like a 750 gig drive. Here's an example of a 2.5" 750gig hard drive with a 9.5mm height:

    500gig drives are much more common "max size" to upgrade to.

    HTH,

    That's what I'd found to be honest.

    What's 250gb between friends eh!!

    And Thanks Nick.

    I'm sure Making my hard drive 4 times bigger will do the trick
