    Would a "1.0 x 640.0 GB - Standard - Serial ATA-300" that came out of an acer Aspire X1700-U3700A be compatible with the aluminum macbook 5,1 2.0GHz?

    If you want to put that unspecified HDD into the MB, then no, as the HDD in that desktop PC from Acer is most likely a 3.5" S-ATA HDD and MBs and MBPs and many other notebooks use 2.5" S-ATA HDDs.
    Maybe have a look at Everest Home 2.20 to analyse your Windows PC and look for the exact HDD model, or open the case and look for yourself how big the HDD is.

    don't bother, desktop hard disks are cheaper than laptop ones, so it's *very* likely that it's and 3,5 inch one. You can get the model from the hdd proprieties under windows and do a google search on that.
