Hello I just got an 100gb Hitachi Travelstar 7200rpm on the Craigs list from somebody who upgraded a laptop as soon as he got it.
The dilemma is the following should I install it in my Mac Mini (not so easy and long) or in my Mac Book (really easy from what I read)?.
They both have a 80gb 5400 rpm original HD
Thanks for your advice.

i would put in the macbook because the mini is a desktop so you can always add an external drive, but assuming you move the macbook around the extra hard drive space will allow you to store more media on the go.

Yes it makes sense you are right.
Thanks
