I need some advice from those of you who have upgraded drives in their MBPs.

I have a 17" MBP with the stock Hitachi HTS541616J9SA00 160Gig drive. The interface speed is 1.5 Gigabit/sec.

I know Hitachi makes the Travelstar 7K320 in both 1.5Gb/s 3Gb/s, but I can't find a 1.5Gb anywhere. Is the 3Gb/s drive backward compatible with the 1.5Gb interface?

Thanks for your advice...
