I want to upgrade my hard drive. At the moment it is 160gb in a 2009 MacBook Pro.
Do I just need a standard 2.5" sata hard drive?
I was looking at this one     500GB Hitachi 2.5” Travelstar HDD, SATA, 5400rpm, 8MB Cache.
Is this suitable. 
Cheers,
Jeff

Hi keepsy,
I found one, WD Scorpio Black 7200 RPM SATA 2.5-inch that claims not to impede the batter life. Amazon (US)Or if you are in the UK, then Amazon UK.  Hope that helps, although I don't know if Western Digital's claim is correct (you may wish to phone Apple to find out).
Another one Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB Internal hard drive - 300 MBps - 7200 rpm , but the emphasis is more on performance.
