    I'm fairly confident that this one is a 3.5" one and you'll need a 2.5" HDD with SATA connections.

    It will be more expensive. You might even want to settle at 500GB.

    Sorry, I changed the link. Can you check again? The customer reviews show that the hard drive is used in Macbooks. I just wanted to be sure that I wasn't dropping $100 for nothing.

    That new drive is okay.

    It's a good HDD, but wouldn't you want a faster spinning one with large buffer? The premium is relatively small but it makes a big difference in general use.
