SSD will make your computer much much faster, OCZ is a good brand, very good and good prices. however with all the reading I have done about this kind of upgrade for myself, some people remained concerned about TRIM support. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/why-trim-im...

Mac OS doesn't have TRIM support, and currently I am not aware of Mac supporting the ability to do firmware updates to the SSD drives controller. Firmware updates will also delete the drive, so a drive imaging or cloning program or using time machine might be important if doing future updates, since the firmware continues to improve, it might be important to do updates in the future.

I am sure mac will adapt their own version of TRIM or support it and i am fairly sure firmware updates will become easier. Not having TRIM is not the end of the world, This is just what I have found while researching getting one myself, i am no expert, please take my info in the spirit it's intended. information.

I really don't know if that drive will work for your model mac, someone else might know. it's an older model mac you have, you might consider the Seagate Momentus XT model line, a hybrid drive ( SSD and regular drive) which would be a very nice setup up and better cost per GB with good reviews and very impressive speed. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/product...

It is a 9.5mm drive which should work fine, just a suggestion as it may be worth looking into if storage space and speed is a consideration.

I am considering buying this as an operating system drive for my desktop machine.
