    That drive should work fine on a 2009 Macbook. I know some of the early MB's had issues with some SATA 2 drives but since yours is a later Macbook, should work fine.

    Let's not start a new thread with the same subject. I merged your post with the thread you already started.

    That drive should work. If you want to be sure and safe, give OWC a try as all their drives are guaranteed to work on a given mac model.

    Is your Macbook Aluminum or white plastic?

    Hi i found this : OWC 53IM2DDR4GBK 4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300... in stock at OWC

    now OWC says that my mac can hold at least 6gb im not really sure though so would this RAM work with my mac along with the hard drive?

    Are you sure you have a 2009 Macbook? What is the Model number and ID? The ID I am talking about would say 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1 ETC. If yours for sure only takes 6GB it's not a 2009.

    Find and post that info please. The model should be silk screened on the bottom somewhere.

    Under the battery is the EMC number.

    My mac is certain 5,2 model i might not get the RAM but I'm looking for some more hard drives :

    Basically a year ago apple repaired my hard drive broke in the first 6 months but kept on working just really slow. i noticed changes in games and performance.

    *will post more hard drives i find *

    the serial number at the back of my mac has been torn :/

    also will this drive work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136279
    the only difference is its smaller than the this drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...a30f501e2fc093

    You don't have to keep posting hard drives.... any 2.5" SATA notebook drive will work. Just make sure it's 2.5" wide and no more than 9.5MM thick. Also, if you go to Other World Computing, they outline which drives and what memory will work in your MB.

    That is what I was trying to convey to him about OWC. With they you know it will work or they will take care of it for you!

    Thanks for your help and sorry for being a pain (apparently) I just wasn't sure about something.

    That's OK. We're not trying to discourage you, just want to make you aware of where you can shop with confidence, and Other World Computing is top notch.
