Perfect upgrade for 2011 Macbook Pro,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Western Digital WD Scorpio Black 750 GB SATA 3 GB/s 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Internal Bulk/OEM 2.5-Inch Mobile Hard Drive (Personal Computers)
This is a perfect upgrade for your new Quad-Core Macbook Pro. Although Apple offers a 750GB drive option, it's not 7200rpm and that's a shame-their drive options limit an otherwise excellent machine. The speed of this drive in a new quad-core i7 15" Macbook Pro is astounding, and places this machine squarely at the desktop replacement level. It's quiet (as quiet as the stock 5400 rpm drive) and I can feel zero vibration. Battery life seems excellent, topping 7 hours with web surfing, MS Word, and less intensive applications that are not disk-intensive or use the discrete graphics.

Thanks for the comments. I would like to know once I install the new hard drive on my MBP, how can I install the OS X? The OS X CD did not come with my MBP. Do I have to buy a new OS CD? Or there is a way to reinstall OS?

You can use a program like Carbon Copy Cloner to copy your current drive to the new one. You just need to connect via usb and clone.
