Far as I know that newer macbook pro have hard drive interface 1.5gb/s and older Macbook pro model have 3gb/s interface. I was wondering if I can change the hard drive interface into 3gb/s? I finish order new hard drive Western Digital 500gb 7200rpm with 16mb cache and there is a link if you want more information about this drive.

thanks!

Macbook Pro 6,2, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

    I think you've got your figures crossed. The newest models support 3 Gb/s while older models are only 1.5 Gb/s.

    You can't change the interface. Everything is soldered to the motherboard. Modern hard drives will work on either interface.

    oh really!? That a relief haha. Im not a big fan of Hitachi drive and Im a big fan of Western Digital when it come to performance and reliability . I notice the performace was stuggle when Im using Window 7 for my bootcamp. This new hard drive willing to improve the performace!
