That particular drive won't fit because it uses an old Parallel ATA interface. You need Serial ATA (SATA) for Macbooks.

you want that. i just got it, its great.

d/l Super Duper, have an external HD or an SATA 2.5 ext. case ready, copy your HD onto the other drive, pull out the old, slide in the new one, you're ready to go.

200 gig for 200$? in a laptop?

nOT right now that wont happen. newegg is usually the closest in price, and theirs are 240$!

that 5k160 is basically the best you can buy right now. ive got its first gen 5k120 in my mbp, its decent.
