I have the first unibody macbook that came out (right before the newpro came out ). It has a 2.4 GHz intel processor, 4 GB of ram, and a 250 GB hard drive. I have a lot of music and a few movies which take up a lot of space, so I was thinking about upgrading to a 500 or 640 GB hard drive. I was looking at WD Scorpio Blue 500GB hard drive like this one: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB 2.5" SATA-300 8MB Cache 5400 RPM Notebook Hard Drive - WD5000BEVT - SuperMediaStore.com

I think it will fit. I remember reading somewhere that macbooks take 2.5 inch hard drives that are 9.5 mm high, but will it ruin my computer in any way?
Like will it bee too much for my computer to handle, or will I be ok?
Has anyone else done this?

Thanks in advance.

It will be fine. Linky to the 640 GB for a few bucks more than the 500GB.
