    Me too. I am having trouble finding one. Lots of places have them listed but nil stock.

    OWC are good

    I don't recommend Seagate... I put a 7200 RPM Segate in my Macbook back in February and its been trouble. Its had huge problems since Mavericks came out

    I did the OWC data doubler for my MacBook Pro - worked a treat. Has really sped up the machine. Might be a bit pricey to get the 1TB tho...

    Get an SSD into that thing if you haven't already.

    A SSD makes no sense if you need storage space :P

    I just recently got a 320 Gb Hitachi Drive, 320 Gb 7200 rpm, and I would definitely recommend them. Read write speeds are 95-105 Mb/s read/write.
