My Passport for Mac 2TB backward compatibility to USB 1.1

MacBook Pro 13.3/2.53/2X2GB/250/SD  MB991B/A Late 2009

I intend to upgrade my Mac within 6 months, in the meantime will a new My Passport for Mac 2TB external HD work with my MacBook Pro

Many thanks


It should work since USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with USB 1.1
