TCP, the Apple drives have apple firmware installed on them to make them 100% boot compatible. Most drives are compatible, but may or may not work with all boot disks/burning options.
I can vouch for this. I've done swaps with the UJ series drives before, and had a "PC" one refuse to boot off CDs but would mount them fine once booted into OS X.
How much slimmer is it? Think it'd be possible with a bit of Dremel action?
The drive will fit, it's the case you'd have to dremel, to get the slot to line up with the drive opening.
