    Ok so now I have a New (Pre-Owned) MacBook and was thinking about upgrading the current HDD (160GB) 2 about 750GB (If it can fit)!! The 750GB HDD is a Western Digital *Note* I don't plan on buying this 1 cause there's a cheaper 1 I found at Amazon I'm showing u this cause of the Specs!! Anyway the current 160GB is a Fujitsu with the same connection setup as the Western Digital as linked above!! All I wanna know is if the WD 1 is compatible and will fit and work in my Late 2008 White MacBook 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo!! lol

    it doesn't matter much abot the brand of HDD, it's weather the new hard drive has the same connection as the old one
    say the fujitsu has a SATA connection, and the WD has a SATA connection aswell i don't see why it won't fit.


    MODs can this be moved to the Computer Systems section

    2,5" HDs which are >500GB might be over than the usual height of 9.5mm (they are 12.5mm tall), so if it's a tight space, it won't fit. Take that in mind.

    Best of luck.

    EDIT: Just looked at the link, and it seems that the WD one you linked should be 9.5mm tall. It should fit, then. But double-check that you're really getting a 9.5mm tall model.

    just make sure it fits and has the same connection as said before. but i would also recommend a 7200 rpm one.

    also, i would look for an external hard drive instead and swap them. it makes it easy to clone your current drive and you'll have an external one for extra storage.
