Why wouldn't it? The new macs don't use a different File System, and if they would, it would be on the front page of apple. You obviously don't need a raid card. This drive is a raid in itself, that's why it's so thick (multiple hard drives). Correct me if I'm wrong, but the RAID card on mac pros is to make raids with internal drives, and it's not even essential (though it seems to boost performance quite a bit).

Yes you can - use the Firewire 800 connection. I use it for HD footage with Final Cut. Very fast and quiet.
