Need bigger internal HDD for MBP!!

Okay I'm coming down to the last 2-3 gigs on my MBP. Have already cleared printer drivers and languages.... It's a 110 gig HDD 5400rpm.

I would like some options for a compatible internal 250gig HDD. Thought I might as well hit up the 7200rpm realm as well

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010150380%201309733643%201035507776&name=7200%20RPM

I Found this, looks really good. A lot of good reviews, yet it's really cheap. I'm always a bit skeptical when it comes to cheap hardware...any thoughts?

Thanks guys!

Well, if my experience is anything to go by:

My G5 has a VelociRaptor for my recording and media. My gaming computer has two WD Caviars (3-years-old), and my current laptop has a Scorpio in it (1.5-years-old).

I used to be skeptical, too, but after I had a failed Toshiba and Seagate I decided to try WD out and haven't gone back.

Cool man, yeah I guess if there are around 200 some positive reviews, I should be okay!
