    my 2006 macbook hard drive has failed and I need to replace it..i have current a 80 gb hard drive 5400 rpm 2.5 sata

    can I put in a 7200 rpm hd? and can it be larger (as in up to 320 gb) or will my macbook not support it?

    also can it be 3.0 gb/s?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Any 2.5" 9.5mm high SATA drive will work (640GB being the current largest). I believe your MB is 1.5GB/s but a 3GB/s drive will work.
