Hard Drive Update

I blogged recently about sourcing a 300GB Fujitsu laptop drive to replace my MacBook Pro's original 120GB drive. Unfortunately, that drive is 12mm high and will not fit in the MacBook Pro. My understanding is that the drive achieves its capacity by adding an extra platter, which makes it just that little bit too big for the machine.

I confess I didn't really appreciate that there were varying heights of 2.5" drive. I do now. I've returned it for a 250GB Western Digital Scorpio drive which, although of lower capacity, spins faster at 5400rpm.
