Laptops typically use 2.5 Inch Laptop drives. The 3.5inch drives used in desktop PC's are physically too big and require too much power to fit in a laptop.

The drives also come in a couple of depth sizes 9mm and 12mm nearly all the computor shops sell 2.5 inch drives use google and do a search.

You may wanna ensure you have all the drivers for the hardware on your lappy before you start replacing stuff..
