Default What is the most optimal hard drive size??? - 11-30-2009, 06:17 PM

Looking to upgrade the 160GB HD to something bigger and maybe faster, any thoughts are to what would be the most optimal size/speed?

I'm a developer/designer so I use a lot of Photo/Video's which can take a lot of space.

Also running OSX

I don't think you can go wrong with the 500GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue many of us have upgraded to. It's fast and economical.
