Hi, I know this shouldn't take too long to answer, but um... what "type" of hard drive would my MacBook have come with? When I say type, I mean things like ATA-150, ATA-6, etc... I'm just trying to figure out what type of new, bigger hard drive I can put in. Thanks!

Ok. So let me take a guess here and presume that Serial-ATA is what SATA stands for...

So ATA-6 isn't right. Where as, Serial-ATA 150 is acceptable. OH, sometimes this all gets confusing. :-/

Thanks though!
