    Does my macbook supports a sata 3.0gb/s hard drive?
    Hi,

    I want to change my macbook's hard drive.

    I found the following drive:

    Seagate Momentus 7200.2 120GB ST9120823AS 2.5" 7200RPM SATA 8MB Cache HDD

    - Rotational Speed: 7,200 RPM
    - Capacity: 120GB
    - Average Read Seek Time: 11.0 ms
    - Buffer: 8MB
    - Interface: SATA 3Gb/s
    - 5 year manufacturer's warranty

    However, i don't know if my macbook supports the SATA 3Gb/s interface.

    Can anyone tell me this?

    Many thx,

    Nuno

    Yes, although it will likely only work in 150Mb/s mode - not a big deal, however, since no hard drive currently made can even saturate a PATA/133 bus.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
