the hard drive on my macbook is starting to die causing PC like freeze ups with no mouse responsiveness. now, i'm looking at hard drives on tigredirect.ca (there aren't that many canadian online computer parts stores) and found that there is quite a difference of price between the WD and seagate level hard drives and similair spec'd Hitachi and Samsung hard drives. I know the WD and seagate are top of the line drives, but is it worth it to put the extra money into one. i know that data isn't something you want to screw around with, and that is why i always have backups. For example, Western Digital Scorpio 120GB Mobile Hard Drive - 2.5" SATA, 5400, 8MB, OEM - $109.99 Hitachi / TravelStar 5K250 / 120GB / 5400 / 8MB / 2.5" Mobile / SATA / OEM / Hard Drive - $85.99 The money i would save on the Hitachi would cover the shipping. Is the WD drive worth the extra money?
