I would like to purchase a 5200RPM 250GB drive for my macbook pro (160GB) but Im not sure I have the tech savvy to do so. Has anyone in here swapped drives? How easy is it and could you point me in the direction of a set by step video or authorized apple places.
Yea, your warrantee will be toast.
If I remember correctly, the MBP takes a SATA 2.5" hard drive.
Look it up on some Mac forums, it shouldn't be too hard.
Replacing a hard drive isn't too hard. I upgrade ~3 or 4 laptop hard drives a week for people at work. It can be very difficult if you don't know what you are doing. I would advise getting a computer savvy friend to help you.
