What model macbook pro do you have? I'm using a mid 2009 model, will it work?

Hi Robert,

I also have a mid-2009 MBP and am looking at this drive. Did you go for it in the end and did it work for you? Any tips appreciated! Thanks.

Hey B, it worked great! Really noticed a difference in speed once I installed it. Definitely recommend it.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for getting back to me. That is reassuring!

I am now weighing up between this drive and the older 750GB Momentus model which runs at 7200rpm as opposed to 5400rpm. I do not know whether the extra revs outweigh the advantage of the extra 250GB - and it's a little more expensive too.

I have tinkered amateurishly with PCs in the past but never before ventured to open up my MacBook Pro. Did you do the replacement yourself? Is it relatively simple? I found a tutorial on ifixit and it looks doable.

My other question (which may be a basic one!) is how best to migrate all the data and operating system and drivers and whatnot from the drive I am replacing to the new one. If you have any top tips I'd be very grateful!

Thanks again and all the best,

B
