Would this hard drive work with a 07 macbook intel duo?

Currently only have a 80gb hard drive and need MORE MEMORY. 8gb cache

White Label 250GB 16MB Cache 7200RPM SATA 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive w/1-Year Warranty

Amazon.com: White Label 250GB 16MB Cache 7200RPM SATA 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive w/1-Year Warranty: Electronics

Also, why is it so inexpensive... The specs look great, and incredibly inexpensive?

Any known issues with doing a HD swap, compatibility, performance??

The "white label" refers to the fact the the drives sticker in white with a serial number only and no branding or mention of the manufacturer. typically they will use a sub-companies name in small print such as Sony for Panasonic white label drive.

Remember the original manufacture of the drive is not responsible for the drive it it fails, the re-branded company is.
Here is a list of all the 2.5 SATA drive's that fit in your computer from Other World Computing (macsales).

Here is the drive I personally used for my last MacBook Pro HD upgrade. I ordered the Kit, so it came with an external enclosure to put the old drive in and the tools needed for the job.
