That drive should work OK with your MacBook. In the rare event that it doesn't, NewEgg has a good return policy.

Regards.

Stick with Pioneer, but on closer inspection, that linked example drive is USB only. Not a bad thing, but firewire or combo would be better.

Check out OWC SuperDrive DVD, DVD Dual-Layer, CD-R/RW, Blu-Ray Optical Drive Solutions FireWire, USB2, eSATA.
