This might be a stupid question(?!?), but se topic!
No, you can't use SCSI disks, and you can't use parallel ATA disks. They have to be SATA.
And thats all I need to take in to consideration given that speed is not an issue?
Yep. SATA. 2.5".
Well you can't use WD Velociraptor either, they're sometimes listed as 2.5".
Other than that every 2.5" SATA drive.
You can't use drives that are 12.5mm thick.
There are a few 1TB drives that won't fit inside your computer, but the new Samsung Spinpoint 1TB is 9.5mm so it will fit.
12.5mm drives fit fine in unibodies in the hdd bay with no case bulge or anything; the wd 1tb blue fits with no problems.
you can't use 15mm drives, like the raptors. not that you would really want to, 10k rpm in a laptop sounds like a bad idea to me...
Unibody MBPs weren't released until 2008 and the OP specifically asked about his 2007 computer.
A 12.5mm hdd won't fit inside a 2007 MBP. Only 9.5mm drives.
