    Hi Sirs,

    I am planning to upgrade HDD of my 2.0 macbook unibody this weekends. I am wat to put in a 500 GB hdd, however, i read an article which says that macbooks supports 500 GB but if the hdd fills up to 250 GB, it will start creating problems.. Is this true? or is this a case to case problem? anyway below is the link of the article:

    http://obscuredclarity.blogspot.com/2008/10/500gb-macbook-harddrive-upgrade-for.html

    I searched on google and there I found nothing which says 500 GB is ok for an upgrade nor it is a bad upgrade.

    I upgraded my MacBook 2.4 unibody to 500GB and I don't have any problems whatsoever. I have 130GB left. No signs of trouble anywhere.

    Go for the upgrade.

    Digital Hub installed 500GB for my MB 2.0 Alu, and today I only have 221GB freespace! But MB works perfectly fine so I guess you have nothing to worry about! :)

    All newer model laptops will support HDDs even 1TB up.

    Go ahead, upgrade your hard drive. No issues as well for me. I upgraded my mbp with a seagate hard drive. :)
