Stevenson, just maybe I'm not envious of Phillips reputation.  I don't downvote often or without cause and I state my reasons in hope that the person will examine the answer given.

I would really love to see a correct answer on this question.  How do you handle Apples proprietary seven lead heat sensor hard drive replacement with a standard SATA drive.  Yes you can change cable (922-9215,16 & 17) for the Hitachi, Seagate & Western Digital but what are you going to do about that firmware?  These drives started about mid 2009.  If you replace the drive with something other than Apples you get raging fan problems.  It may take a class action law suit to get Apple to release firmware and software updates for other hard drives but until then the consumer is screwed.
