Love this drive. Swapped out my 5400rpm from my macbook for this baby and can honestly say my machine now flies - noticeably quicker than my dual-g5 powermac with 4GB of ram! The drive is quiet and so far very reliable. It seems to vibrate a little more noticeably but this may be due to the faster rpms - its not audible but can be felt thru the chassis - not a big deal. I expected battery life to drop but not so - havent noticed any difference. Apple is shipping these as a $250 upgrade in their top of the line macbook pros - but you can get one here cheaper and put the spare drive to backup use. You need this drive. Highly recommended!!

MacBook HD Replacement Drive

by Macbook drive Switcher on 8/16/2007

I was running out of drive space on my Intel macbook so I ordered this drive. It was the first time I have opened the battery compartment. For the macbook you will need a Phillips(0) and a Trox T-8? (just but a set) . I have a Firewire/USB external drive that I 'Carbon Copy Cloner' cloned my drive to prior to pulling it out. Then after installing the new drive, I was able to boot using the external drive. I had to use 'Disk Utilities' to format (they call it petition) and name the drive. I then used 'Carbon Copy Cloner' to move the disk image from the external to the new drive. My macbook is back to normal and seems a bit faster.
