Would this hard drive be compatible with the 10.7 software on my macbook or would I be better off buying another one?

The box states under "Compatability" that it is formatted HFS+J for Mac OSX Lion or Mountain Lion. Based on that, I would presume that it doesn't work with anything below Lion, or at least, not as it is formatted from the box. At the bottom of the section it also says "Compatability may vary depending on user's hardware configuration and operating system." Whether or not it could be formatted using Disk Utility for use with your own computer/system, hard to say. I guess I'd contact Western Digital for more information if you have doubts.
