Hi there,

I am to upgrade the 2.5" 5400rpm 250gb hard disk drive in my 13"  MacBook Pro (mid 2009). I want to increase both the capacity(to 750gb+) and thespeed significantly. An Apple genius suggested a Hybrid Hard Drive. 


After looking on,, and but the only Hybrid Hard Drive I can find Seagate SSHD. Another Apple Genius said he would not recommend Seagate Hard Drives and that Toshiba make better faster Hybrid Drives (which he said Ebuyer sells). I can't seem to find anything other than the Seagate model.


          This the Seagate Hybrid Hard Drive

          (Seagate 750GB Momentus XT Serial 2.5 inch 7200 RPM 32MB 6GB/S SATA Solid State Hybrid Hard Drive)



I would appreciate anyones input on where I can get order a high quality Hybrid Hard Drive and general comments regading this subject.



Please note:

  • I'm miles away from being wealthy but quality ismore import that cost here.
  • I am not willing to remove optical drive / CD drive to accomidate
  • Please note I have already purchased a RAM upradge to increase the speed.
