French: Je ne le recommande pas. Le lecteur optique MacBook utilise une interface PATA qui est assez lent.

Une meilleure solution serait de remplacer votre disque dur avec une plus grande (et plus rapide) entraînement hybride SSHD.

Je recommande ce disque: Seagate Laptop SSHD. Suivez ce guide iFixit: MacBook Core Duo Hard Drive Replacement.
