But if you need size first and foremost, put that as your first priority. Heck, can't you just go onto Newegg and buy a laptop hard drive that has the best of both worlds (fast speed and storage space)?
ya if you wanna rip out your hard drive and void the warranty on the mac, lol.
i mean ya you could do it.. but its not really worth it.
there isnt a noticable difference between the two unless your running very intensive programs (extensive video editing, gaming, etc.) then you may want to invest in a faster hard drive.
size comes first though especially with video editing
oh and on another post: when you take anyting off/apart/etc on a mac, including replacing the HD, it voids the entire warranty.
they'll fix something.. but its gonna cost a pretty penny.
