    The hard drive in my MacBook is turning 3 years old, and weird noises are being emitted from it, which means, the hard drive is on it's last legs.

    The stock Apple hard drive was an 80GB. Specs of the MacBook are in the sig.

    I was thinking to myself, why not take this as an opportunity to get a much larger hard drive for not that much money. So I came across this:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...drive&lp=4&type=product&cp=1&id=1218030894682

    Question is, would it fit the MacBook White from 2007, and how does it perform? Anyone have any experience with this drive?

    Should work just fine. Seagate makes great drives.

    Yes.

    Can't speak from experience about this particular drive though. After 30 years of using various drives I'm convinced they all come from the same Chinese sweatshop.

    it'll work fine, but there are much better, and much cheaper places to buy your HDD than from best buy. basically any 2.5" SATA drive will do.
