Hey guys, quick question. I know the MacBook uses a SATA hard drive. I have the black one with the 80GB, but its brand new and im lookng to see if it might be worth selling on eBay and buying a 100 or 120gb drive. My question is, when I go to TigerDirect, it doesn't say SATA, but says 2.5" mobile hard drives. And under interface, it says Mobile Hard Drive. Is that what I need? Or is there something different? Thanks.

that should be it, have you also considered purchasing an external hard drive? i have found on my laptop with a 60 gig had drive that you dont need to be carrying around all that info with you all the time, you can leave some stuff at home on a HD

anyway, yes i believe mobile drives should be 2.5" drives, if you are concerned go to newegg and there is no question when searching there wether it is the correct drive

MoTM honor roll...
i dont remember
