    It won't fit.

    1. Seems to have a PATA and not a SATA interface
    2. The dimensions are those of a 3.5 inch drive anyway (1.03" x 4" x 5.79").

    You need a SATA hard drive, 2,5", with a maximum width of 9.5mm (0.374 inches)

    I recently put this little monster in my macbook and it's amazing.
    It's so much faster than the stock 4200 RPM HDD that it came with, not to mention more spacious. I can feel it vibrate a very small amount, but I have to be thinking about it or concentrating on it to really notice it. Over all it's great, now my computer boots in less then 4 seconds, data transfers are done extremely fast (what used to take 30 minutes to transfer now takes 4) and it comes with an external enclosure to turn your old HDD into an external HDD.
    Also don't be scared because it says it is designed for XP or Vista computers, it also says in smaller print that it works fine with any Intel Pentium like computer.
