Hi,

Do you know where I can buy one of these drives?


+ I am about to buy RAM - is OWC pair the best? I have seen the ram on newegg but they are not pairs.

Thanks

The Seagate 160 GB, 7200 RPM notebook drive isn't showing up until Q1 2007 (it's in the notebook-specific press release). The largest 7200 RPM drive that I know of for notebooks is 100 GB. And the largest SATA, 5400 RPM drive is a 120 GB model.

I don't know if OWC is the best, but it should be alright. I use Crucial myself.

I tried to find someone selling a 160gb SATA of any brand and had to settle for a 120; it sounds like anything higher capacity is around 3 months away.

I just received 2 gb ram from Newegg last week. I purchased the Patriot brand - they seemed to have better reviews on Newegg. So far the ram has worked just fine.

160gb SATA drives are available; they're just only available in 4200rpm at the moment. I keep the hard drive section of my MacBook Resource Site constantly updated:

Unfortunately, that one won't work. the MHV2160BT is a 12mm drive and the Macbook can only accept the standard 9.5mm drives.
