    New hard drive?
    Does anyone know if this will work in a macbook?
    I am so lost as to trying to figure out what drive will and won't work in the macbook.

    I only took a really close look but I think that drive is for a desktop, you need a 2 1/2" sata drive.

    Ahhhh thanks Reel1. I am a computer moron when it comes to hardware. The places with cheaper hard-drives unfortunately don't give you any compability info, and the ones with the compability info are expensive for the most part.

    Your welcome. I think this is the one you want the size is anyway. But bedore you pay for it ensure that it is a Sata drive.

    Good luck

    Usually if they don't specify SATA then it is PATA.

    btw, if you check out a few of the other threads on this topic you should find plenty of HD buying advice for MacBooks.

    I put a 100G 7200 drive in my MacBook but can't honestly say it is any faster than the 160G 5400 drive in my MB-Pro, personally I would advise going for the biggest 5400 drive you can afford.

    btw2, I've noticed an iBook in you computer list, I put a 120Gb 5400 PATA drive in my iBook a few weeks ago (bit of a fiddly job but doable if you are very careful) and it made a huge difference to it!
