    I just got one a refurbished before-the-update Macbook (1.86 ghz intel core2 due), and I'm thinking about getting a new hard drive. Will this one work:? (I wasn't sure if there was a capacity limit or something like that--the new ones can only go up to 200gb?--and couldn't find any info.)

    The Macbook accepts 2.5 SATA. The one you're considering would would fine.

    Many people prefer the Seagate Momentus & Hitachi Travelstar.

    I've had the 160GB Hitachi drive in my refurb MB since November. It serves me well (and quietly) each and every day!!

    Cheers,
