disregard everything KrazyC has said on this so far.

It must be a 2.5'' (also known as Notebook) hdd. The example he posted is a 3.5'' (desktop) hdd. The largest 2.5'' hdds on the market at the moment are 250gb. You can find them at newegg.com

That's a 3.5" HDD. wont fit in.

You need a 2.5" SATA HDD. There are 250GB models, you can check up the Western Digital WD2500BEVS.
