    I'm going to have to pop a larger hard drive in this Macbook (2007) to buy a little time before I replace the computer. Does anyone know if my Macbook's sudden motion sensor can work with *any* replacement hard drive to tell that drive to park its heads in the event of a drop? Or does that only work with certain ones?

    Yes, it works with any drive. I'd recommend a drive without it's own built in sensor to prevent conflicts with the built in one.

    O cool haha I always thought that the sudden motion sensor was built into the drive itself, not the MB. Good thing to know when I buy drives in the future. :D
