Exclamation Will this SSD work well in my late 2008 MacBook aluminum?

My intel died tonight, meh. Lets not talk about that. I have a lot of things due coming up. So will this work?

It's a Crucial M4. Thanks for any help. Posting this from the phone btw.

You can also go with a Samsung 830 it is on sale, due to upcoming successors, and maybe cheap.

Are these benchmarks acceptable for the Macbook I own?

I never bothered to check the last SSD, but a buddy had asked me to look at it.
