What Type of Optical Drive Does It Use?

Texto:

Hi, I'm about to buy a second-hand Black MacBook Core Duo to replace my PowerBook G4.  It's used, and has a non-functional optical drive, but works 100% otherwise.  I was wondering what kind of SuperDrive it uses.  My Powerbook G4 (17" 1.5Ghz Low-Res) has a PATA 8X superdrive in it, and I was planing on just taking the drive out of there, and putting it in the MacBook.  I know that earlier MacBooks use PATA drives as well, so this should be possible.  Is this true, or will I need ot buy a new optical drive?

Also, I'm not to familiar with newer (Post-PowerPC) Macs.  I'm paying around $300 for this laptop.  Is that a decent deal?  It also may need a new battery, as it's seller is telling me that it only gets around 2 hours on a full charge.

The laptop specs are:

-2.0Ghz Core Duo

-1GB RAM

-80GB Hard Drive

-OS 10.6 Snow Leopard Installed

It also includes Leopard Restore Disks, and the Charger

Dispositivo:
