I've got an old 2007 Macbook Pro laptop and I'm looking to upgrade the HDD. The motherboard has a regular SATA controller. Will a SATA 3.0 HDD work if I hook it up? Obviously I don't expect to see SATA 3.0 speeds. It's just that all the affordable HDDs with large sizes and fast RPMs nowadays are SATA 3.0 and as long as they're backwards compatible and work at regular SATA speed I'd like to use them. Thanks!
