What are good options for a hard drive upgrade?
I am looking to upgrade my stock hard drive, I was looking to keeping it with the same brand as the stock, just increasing the capacity. The stock is a Hitachi HTS545025B9SA02 256GB HDD 5400rpm. i was looking for 1TB hard drive.
I have a few basic questions.
Should i be looking for a 9.5mm hard drive?
(I read my current hard disk is a 9.5mm hard disk)
Should i go for any manufacturer when it comes to hard disk?
(I have read in other forums that its better to stick with the manufacturer of the stock hard disk, hitachi in my case.)
Is it drastically better to switch to a 7200rpm hard disk?
(I have read that 7200rpm hard disk causes heating issues in some 2010 macbook pros. And i keep my mac running for long hours, so it already gets bearably too hot.)
Is this a good question?
