What is the best 1TB Internal Hard Drive upgrade for my 13" MacBook Pro?

Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade the Internal Hard Drive on my MBP 13" (bought in Sept 2009) to 1TB but I'm just wondering what models are compatible as there is a lot of talk over size and height etc.

Could anyone help me out? Link me to a variety of models that are good/cheap?

Is this compatible?

Thanks.

That 1TB drive is compatible. There aren't many 1TB 2.5" SATA drives out there, so you might want to consider getting that one.

At these forums, users claim 12.5mm drives so fit.

Secondly, currently there are NO 12.5mm 2.5" 1TB drives.

Sorry about my mistake. I meant to say "there are currently NO *9.5mm* 2.5" 1TB drives."

OK, so here's how it works. Your Macbook Pro has a 2.5" SATA hard drive. That means that every single 2.5" hard drive with a SATA connection is compatible with it. There's no such thing as a "Windows" hard drive or a "Mac" hard drive because the hard drive doesn't know or care what operating system (or systems) you are running.

I would reconsider to an external drive if i were you. Filling an internal drive with items is the best way to overwork your RAM and slow your PC down fast.
