I even called apple under the macbook pro support line thing and they say "Im sorry sir, we don't have that information."

Last report was they came fitted out with a Toshiba drive. Generally Apple sources drives etc based on best tender.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

It just depends. The new MBPs also have Hitachi drives. I'm not sure about the SSDs.

my 2009 and 2010 models imac/mbp both had Hitachi drives as stock.

my guess for the SSDs would be either OCZ or Intel. not sure though.

EDIT: according to this, they use Samsung SSDs (not exactly the best, but hey ho)

I recall hearing Samsung as well - but was too lazy to go look.

If I am correct

the 7200 RPM's are Hitachi
the 5400 RPM's are Toshiba

I definitely could be wrong

I've seen mostly Hitachi HDs in Mac portables... 5400rpm and 7200rpm.
In one of the 2010 MBPs that I had, I had a 5400rpm WD and returned it (faulty) for the same model, which came with a Hitachi HD.
My friend's 2010 MBP who's HD I replaced, came with a Seagate.
Basically, as you can see, there is no specific brand, as it all comes down to the best deal that Apple can get at the time of production of batches of Macs.
