What is manufacturer/model of the HDD in the new MacBook Pro?

Asked by sumul (360points) October 27th, 2008

I can’t find any details about the hard drives in the new MacBook Pros (other than SATA, 250GB or 320GB, 5400-rpm or 7200-rpm). I asked an Apple Expert via the live chat on the online Apple Store, but he didn’t have any information.

If you know the manufacturer or model number of the hard drives that Apple uses in the new MacBook Pro, please let me know.

If you have a new MacBook Pro, you can find the model number by launching System Profiler and selecting Serial-ATA in the left column. The model number will be a string of letters and numbers next to the word “Model:”.

@wilhel1812: Thanks! My previous generation MacBook has a Fujitsu too. I’m wondering about newest generation MacBook Pros though. My iMac has a Seagate, so it might be different.

@iwamoto: If you have a new MacBook Pro, I’d really appreciate it (you’ll get a “Great Answer” and everything).
