I want to put my...

13" Macbook Pro Unibody's 2.5" internal hard drive (5400 rpm, 160 gb) into my old 13" Black Macbook (2 gHz)...

Will the Black MB accept the drive and function fine? Meanwhile, I want to upgrade the Unibody's HD to 500 GB... I'm looking at this one: 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate SATA Hard Drive (New) - iFixit

Heard bad things about Seagate, can anyone verify whether this drive will work ok with my Unibody, or should I get something else?

Lastly, can I get all my programs/data perfectly copied to the new bigger HD with the Disk Utility? Will the transfer cause all my programs to open and operate like nothing ever happened, or do I have to activate everything again?

Sorry for million questions, much appreciate any help, thanks!!!!
