Hi roguesblight
The drive will physically fit, the rpm of the replacement HDD is slightly slower, it will function at the max gb/s that your MB is capable of and a + is that it has an improved 64mb of cache as opposed to the old HDDs 32mb of cache.
I hope this answers your question but if not let us know or if we can help further.
