    More to the point how big a drive has ANYONE put in their MacBook successfuly?

    Thinking about the new SSD drives and the prices have really dropped. 1TB WD $ 179 at Amazon.

    Couldn't find where to enter my hardware so here it is:
    MacBook 2.2 GHz Intel Core Duo
    4GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    MAC OS X 10.7.3

    I guess I was looking at this:

    http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Scorpio-2-5-Inch-Notebook/dp/B005DVJJWQ/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

    and got SATA mixed up with SSD.
    (but the partition size question still applies!)
    Sorry!

    Just found this Seagate Hybrid drive with some great and one *flaming* review--take a look:
    750GB for just $179

    That can't possibly be a terabyte SSD at that price. Provide a link please.

    That can't be an SSD. A 1 TB internal SSD would cost over $3,000.

    Rugaby I'm beginning to suspect that you're secretly a really nice guy...
    Anyway, any ideas about the max partition size Lion can handle? I'm down to 33GB's! Yikes. Of course my first PC harddrive cost $1500 and was 10MB's!

    So are you REALLY Christopher Walken using a nom de plume? That's what I heard, anyway...

    If Christopher Walken was to use a pen name it would be way better than rugaby. Lol

    Europa: I must have been looking at one of the drives referenced above. I'd been up since 3am and by 10:30am must have been a "bear of little brain"

    Intel MacBooks, due to UEFI, don't have restrictions on the hard drive size (at least in the Terabyte range). The only thing that is limited is the physical space (to 9.5mm in height), but there are 1TB 2.5" hard drives that are 9.5mm high.
