    The size is fine, but your machine won't get any benefit by using a SATA III drive, it's too old. Your machine only recognizes up to SATA II, it will work but will be a waste of some money.

    That's great, thanks!

    The drive is free as it's an excess one from work, so not worried about the cost.

    Just 500GB. Currently have a 2TB iTunes library on an external USB drive, so it will be nice to finally move it all back onto the main internal HDD!

    Surely it'll be a great deal with a 4TB HDD.
