Is there a limit to how big a hard drive i can install on to my Macbook?
As long as it physically fits, there's no limit on the capacity.
Great. I'll get the WD 3TB then.
AFAIK, WD doesn't make a 3TB drive for notebooks.
Notebook harddrives in the 1+TB capacities may be a 2.5in drive, but may also be taller than your standard drive, and will not fit in your macbook. Such as this drive from WD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136545
Checkout the dimensions and make sure its not too thick to fit.
the common size for 2.5" is 9.5mm height. note the larger hdd (multiple platters) are usually 12mm. The macbook pros fit 12mm as well as the aluminum macbook.... and i'm relatively sure(like 90%) that i read white unibody macbooks do as well. (an older one, with a button instead of a large glass trackpad) isn't able to fit 12mm....
