I'm not an expert, but I don't think so. It says sony PS3 compatible, so i'm guessing it wont work. Probably safer to go with a HDD made for computers

Yes it will work if your Macbook is post 2006. These guys in the US sell them for Macbooks.

I'm pretty sure that the PS3 just uses a regular 2.5" SATA drive.

Pretty much any SATA 2.5" HDD 9mm height will work.
