Will this work with an early 2011 macbook pro?

I need to remove my entire system off my macbook pro 2011 and reboot it after a failed Yosemite and I need to buy a new hard drive to do so. Am wondering if this is the best one for the job....? Thanks

    Absolutely. I have been using this drive with my February 2011 MBP 8,1 for the past 2 years and would have recommended this without reservations UNTIL TODAY (December 10, 2014) when the drive failed to mount on the desktop. I literally purchased this from the Apple store exactly 2 years ago on December 12, 2012 and will contact LaCie and/or head to the Apple store by Friday (there is a 2 year warranty). I went through the troubleshooting steps that LaCie recommended but the disk remains kaput.
