  1. did you get a chance to review this one

    I am planning to upgrade my Mac, already adding 8 GB Ram, now looking at increasing the hard drive.

    If I am not a gamer ,but do some good sudio/video editing do you think a 5400 RPM drive would do? Any suggestions on 5400 vs 7200

  2. No :(. I know guys who handle Samsung but they don't get storage drives for evaluation. I've asked them once some time back. I think Corsair has notebook memory kits specifically for mac. You might want to check that out if you haven't made up your mind about it. As far as the drive goes, let me know your budget.

  3. cool, will check them out. My budget is around $150 ish.
