MacSales (aka Other World Computing) just announced a 500GB 2.5 drive  
that would work. I would be a bit more conservative. But I like  
Seagate. Their customer service has been great. Only downside, that  
any firmware updates (only ever had 1 in 10 years), must be performed  
on a Windows system.

Salut !

I have positive experience with 2.5" drives from 40 to 160 Gb with  
IBM, Hitachi, Samsung, SeaGate/Momentus, Toshiba.
Go for the 7200 rpm if you can, as I have found the speed does make a  
Certainly not lower than 5400rpm.
