    Read all about it @ EveryMac.com

    HDD mounting sleds in the 4 internal bays in the MP 4.1 are for standard 3,5". Why consider 2,5"?

    SATA II. You can go to Apple website and download the Mac Pro 2009 user manual. All the official information is there.

    Yes, just get a 3.5 inch hard drive with SATA (does not matter if SATA II or SATA III)

    If you consider it for OS X booting, i recommend a 7500 rpm hard disk, if it is only for data a WD green 5400 rpm drive is good enough.
