    Yup, it'd be a nice little fast drive. Alliterative, too: 2GB, 2Ghz, and 200GB, LOL. Go for it! Be sure you have something big enough to backup too.

    Also, grab a cheap USB2 or Firewire case for the old drive to use as a portable unit. Check on eBay or get the 200GB drive with a case at OWC.

    Yes it will and you'll love the speed boost moving out of your stock 5400rpm drive.

    Either of the first two will work. The third one won't - it's for an older drive type that does not match the drive from your Macbook. You want SATA cases, not IDE/ATA.

    Have fun!

    Thanks so much. I'm gonna go with this one and soon I'll be enjoying my blazing fast 7200 rpm :D
