WD Scorpio-Blue-Series 1 TB drive in a MacBook Pro Unibody

Текст:

Dear all,

New internal notebook hard drives with 1 TB capacity have recently been announced; Western Digital was the first one of them (they announced the WD Scorpio-Blue-Serie in july '09). However, this drive has three platters instead of the usual two, and thus has an untypical height of 12.5 mm instead of 9.5 mm (the normative height of 2.5 " drives).

Since I am up to decide on a composition for a new 13" Macbook Pro that I want to buy, I am asking myself if this new (higher) drive would fit into the recent Macbook Pros with built-in battery; not all notebooks can take up such high drives. I found indications that it might fit into this Macbook Pro in one report about fitting an SSD drive into that Macbook Pro; this drive is, according to my research, 13 mm high. However, that was the only thing I found, and I consider it unclear if I can deduct from this info that such high drives will definitely fit (and be easy to mount with screws etc.).

Can You, if possible, please clearly indicate whether it is possible or not?

Thanks in advance! With kind regards,
Björn
