It should. It's a SATA III connection (6Gb/s) which is backwards compatible with all other internal sata standards.

The one issue you will face, well it's not really an issue... but I believe the 2010 macbook pros just have a SATA II (3Gb/s) connection, so you won't be able to fully utilize that SSD, though it will still be quite an improvement over a spinning disk.

if you can find it, go for the 830 instead. it is also SATAIII, but it is proven to work with the Nvidia AHCI controller on the macbooks. it is the previous model to the current 840 line, but uses more reliable NAND chips (MLC vs TLC). if you can find it, i would suggest going with the 830. i just installed one into my late 2008 unibody macbook over the weekend, and i love it.

They're better SSD's than the 840's anyway (The 840 pro beats both, but you won't notice the gains on a SATA II connector).
