Is this: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500 GB Bulk/OEM Hard Drive 2.5 Inch, 8 MB Cache, 5400 RPM SATA II - $90

compatible with my MacBook? its just the basic $999 MacBook that was purchased from Apple in June 2009. (and i upgraded to snow leopard just a couple weeks ago or so)

actually if you want something a little better this is the HD I put in my Macbook Pro

Newegg.com - Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9500420AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - Laptop Hard Drives

7200rpm drives are sexxay.. and I hardly notice a difference in the power consumption. Plus you get double the cache!

some people have reported that they are... I have not noticed it run any hotter and it barely affects my battery life
