Upgrade MacBook Pro to 200GB 7200rpm

Having now several Parallels Virtual Machine images I’d quickly reached the limits of the 5400rpm 120GB SATA hard disk my MacBook Pro was CTO’d with.

To replace it I chose the the Seagate Momentus 7200.2 200GB model with 16MB cache.

Replacing the drive is time-consuming but straight forward, I could have used CarbonCopyCloner, but plumped for SuperDuper instead to copy the contents of the old drive to the new one which I had placed temporarily in a SATA Firewire enclosure.

The new disk isn’t really much faster, but the extra space made the operation worthwhile.
