9.5 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure not compatible?

Looking at this:

9.5 mm PATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure

it says that: All MacBooks (excluding Early or Mid 2009 MacBooks, MacBook Unibody and MacBook Air)

I have a Mid 2009 MacBook and I am wondering why this is incompatible with it.

Is this a good question?

Even though it says it is just for Unibody MacBooks and Pros? I have the MacBook from right before the unibody ones.

I also have a mid 2009 Macbook. I'm looking to buy the optical bay HDD enclosure too. However the item that Mayer links to does not say anything about fitting the Mid 2009 macbook. It specifies that it's compatible with the late 2008 (Aluminum) Macbook, and the later unibody models. Nothing about the mid 2009 non-unibody models.

So, as Steven Quan says, should I buy the Unibody-style optical bay hdd enclosure?
