    Exclamation Brand of HDD
    Does anyone know what brand of HDD there are in the newest macbooks? My Powerbook G4 had a hitachi travelstar. Also what would be reccomended for a HDD uprade (as in brands). Is seagate still considered to be the best?

    I just find that apple wants way too much for hard drive upgrades and I have a hard time believing that they are that much better.

    I heard they are toshibas. if looking to upgrade I'd always go with a seagate or Western digital. They're at the same level for me.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro Retina 13" • iPhone 6 • iPad Air • and many iPods
    My MacBook came with a Fujitsu, and when I upgraded I installed another Fujitsu (based on price and availability). It works just fine for me.

    I don't know about Seagate's being considered "the best," but they're certainly one of the key brands I look at, in addition to Western Digital.
