New MacBook Pro 17" i7 Hard Drive Part number?

History

Hi there I have a new 17 inch MBP i7 and am curious as to what the part/model number of the 500GB 7200 rpm Hard drive is that Apple uses in the MBP when you order it online from their website.

Looking at the 15 inch i5 teardown and seeing a seagate drive in there was surprising to me since I have the 500 5400 RPM drive in mine, and disk utility reports the drive as a Hitachi HTS545050B9SA02. I didn't think that Apple would use two different 5400 RPM drives in the 15 - 17 inch MBPs.

It really doesn't matter. There are standard 2,5" SATA drive in these machines. Apple fits different brands. I usually choose Samsung drives, rarely had any trouble with them.

for Americans and Liberians, that's 2.5"

The hard drive is a 320 GB Hitachi HTS543232L95A02 SATA drive using the NVIDIA MCP79 AHCI controller. (From the teardown.

So I'm guessing the 500GB version would also use a Hitachi
