Thinking of upgrading to a SSD and wonder if THIS is compatible?
Yes most any 2.5" SATA drive will work.
Hmmm,,,do you think this is a good deal? Would I notice the speed significant?
With WD 3200 BEKT (7200 rpm), I gained a lot, mac boots in 22", there is a fan like noise from the increased rotation, but the drive is cooler than the stock one.
SSD is yet to much expensive toy to play around.
Your Mac boots up in the time it takes you to throw it 22 inches?!!
I have one, just purchased it from TigerDirect.com
it was $123 with S&H no Tax best deal around and I looked hard.
It has made the boot up and shutdown much faster, also some apps run much quicker, although I have a large iTunes library it has made it run quicker but not all that much, but everything else is good and less vibrations and quite compared to my other 7200 RPM HDD.
I am very pleased as I have had Hitachi, WD, and Seagate drives even Toshiba, this performs best from what I can tell.
There is no way to access the 4GB SSD drive, the Seagate drive does it automatically so do not think you can load your OS just on that.
I don't know if I'm willing to spend $99 on something just to have it boot up and shut down faster.

just in case you didn't know that
Everything loads much faster, and in my case, I gained double amount of storage
What is your initial idea for getting one?
More space and speed basically. However, I don't know if I would accept the noise. My macbook is pretty darn quiet and I have gotten use to it.
Understand your concern , as I stated, WD 3200 BEKT has a humming, fan like noise, that you can hear only in noise free environment. No vibrations or high temperature detected.
