Not to worry the speed (RPM) or the size of the drive (GB size) have no bearing here. Other than making sure the drive physically fits in it the system.
What you do have to watch out for is what SATA standard the system supports and the drives ability to run at that SATA standard. In this case you should first make sure your system has the latest EFI Firmware. As some systems can support the faster SATA III (3.0 MB/s) data rate. If not, you'll need to locate the jumper on the HD to lower the data rate to SATA II (1.5 MB/s).
