Western Digital - My Passport Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive - Intense Blue - WDMEB500TN

can anybody tell me if this is compatible with a MacBook mine is model A1181

Lol, I was going to get a terabyte installed in mine, but it was too big (the largest they could physically go was a 500gb), so I got an external one. The wireless ones are supposed to be as slow as mess, as they use a wireless signal to transfer info, instead of a wireless internet network. At least, that is what I have heard.
QUOTE Thanks
