    Specs:
    15" MacBook Pro, i7 2.66Ghz, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD; iPad 3, iPhone 5
    Then you'll be needing a 500GB 7200rpm HDD, from somewhere like this:

    2.5" Laptop Hard Drives & SSD for MacBook, PowerBook, iBook, and PC Laptop/NoteBook systems Serial ATA & IDE/ATA

    People have their own preferences, but I quite like Western Digital for mechanical HDDs, and Seagate it pretty standard too.

    320GB WD 320GB 2.5" Western Digital 'Scorpio BLACK'... (WD3200BEKT) at OWC

    or

    500GB Seagate DIY KIT: 500GB 7200RPM HD for MacBook,... (OWCYST9500420AS) at OWC

    The Seagate is aimed at MacBooks, and comes with an installation kit. At less that $100, you really can't go wrong.

    Alternatively, you could probably land yourself a 2TB external HDD with Firewire 800 for less than $200.

    Specs:
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Any of these will work in any white Macbook.

    SSDs are highly pricey, so for size, speed and value for money, 500-750GB 7200rpm HDs are the way to go.

    I have the Hitachi 7K500 which is a 500GB 7200rpm HD that runs silently, with no excess heat or power consumption. Would recommend it to anyone.

    If you click the links that I gave you in the other thread in my first response, you will see that they are "internal Hard Drives!"

    Yes, they all are, but some come with screwdrivers and an external enclosure.
    An external enclosure is a device that you can put your old hard drive in to make it and external hard drive.
    These are good to have, as it makes it easy to transfer your data off your old hard drive to your new hard drive.

    This link shows you how to install the hard drive.
    It is very easy.
