Posted in "Hardware - Apple Notebooks" forum, as it's for my MacBook, but rules state external HD issues to post here, so did in case I've done wrong.

Have Black MacBook (Model 3, 1) w/specs:

Processor: 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Firewire: 400
Hard Drive: Capacity = 148.73 GB Available = 108.74 GB

Is LaCie 320GB Rugged All Terrain external HD w/7200 (vs. 5400) RPM suitable for my MacBook model & if so, will it significantly increase transfer speed?

I appreciate & thank you in advance for any assistance you all can provide.

Best Regards,

KFC, III ("Kenny")

That HDD is an external one and so won't fit into your MacBook.

If you can afford to buy a 7,2000rpm drive I'd recommend it if you are using large files and needing real-time updating e.g. video editing.
