    I have recently become very interested in this drive:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148837

    I have an early 2008 2.4ghz core 2 duo macbook. Here are its specs:
    http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...duo-2.4-white-13-early-2008-penryn-specs.html

    I would like to know if it is compatible with my macbook so as to avoid restocking fees were it not to work.

    If it is compatible, I would like to know these things:
    1) How it will affect my battery life vs. the 5400rpm drive that came with my computer
    2) Will it "cache" properly if I am switching between Lion OS X & Windows 7 using bootcamp? (Or will it have to relearn which programs to put on the SSD part every time I switch operating systems?)


    Thanks for your feedback!

    Yes, I too have the same question. I posted it under the thread "Late 2006 Black Macbook (C2D) Hard Drive". I have a black intel core 2 duo 2.0 ghz model and was looking at the 500 gig version of this hard drive. Any users here know if it will give my comp a significant boost in performance.

    I would advise that you stay away from the 500gb version. I have done a bit of research and the general consensus I have gathered from the web is that the 500gb version a) has various problems that 750gb doesn't and b) has a smaller ssd portion (4gb vs 8gb) which apparently makes a big difference.
