Laptop Hard Drive Upgrade

I upgraded my MacBook Pro hard drive to fresh install Mac OS X Leopard along with iLife ’09 and iWork ’09. I opted to get Western Digital Scorpio Black 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache notebook hard drive. I could have gotten a 500GB hard drive, but it is running at 5400RPM and only has 8MB cache.

I also need to get an external SATA FireWire/USB/eSATA enclosure or dock for the old hard drive.

My favorite 2.5-inch SATA hard drive enclosure with FireWire is none other than OWC Mercury On-The-Go. It is a little bit pricey, but by-far it has been the best enclosure I ever have.
