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??

Remember the original manufacture of the drive is not responsible for the drive it it fails, the re-branded company is.

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.
