    My Macbook HD died :(, luckily I have everything backed up. No mayor loses. Now, I need a new one but I'm clueless in what to get.
    My Macbook model is 13-inch, Early 2008, Generation 5, MB402xx/A
    The HD that died is a Fujistsu SATA 250GB (that's all I know)

    It would be OK to replace it with this one??? :confused:

    Any better ideas (my budget allows me a max of $75).
    I would appreciate help with this
    Thanks

    That drive will work fine. You can find some a bit cheaper at smaller capacity, but not much.

    If you don't need that much harddrive space (or could use a external drive) you should try using a ssd...you would be blown away at how fast your macbook would feel...it's like night and day difference.

    Newegg has the samsung 840 for $109 but have seen on sale other places for $99. The Samsung drives are very good (note: the 840 should not be confused with the 840 pro...but still a very good drive with good review specs)
