Hard Drive Replacement Suggestions
My Macbook Pro model A1278 2.3 GHz i5 mounts a 320Gb Hitachi hard drive as you know. During my last scan with Drive Genius, it showed I had more than 900 bad or suspect block at 1% of scan. The mac has been backed up fine with time machine and I haven't encounter yet in any corrupted files. However, I know it would only get worse. Should I replace my hard drive, and if yes, can I upgrade to a 7200 RPM or should I replace it with a 5400 RPM. I have two options for 5400 RPM. A 500Gb Hitachi Travelstar with a 7mm profile or 1TB Hitachi Travelstar with a 9mm profile. Would the 9mm fit? Which one would you recommend?
Hope I wasn't too painful!!!
Thank you for your time and best regards
