There are several retailers in the UK. Do a Google search for the type of drive you want.

I believe any 2.5" sata drive will fit.

Hey there: give a look to ifixit.com they have really extensive guides how to do the replacement step by step. I changed my HD with their guide and I've had no problems.
About which HD to buy: look this website (they also sell HD, but they're based on US): Find the latest Performance Upgrades, Firewire and USB Hard Drives, SATA, Memory, Laptop Battery, and more at OWC If you select your computer they show you all the characteristics of it and which HD, RAM, etc you have to buy. Really useful if you don't know exactly which HD to buy
And good luck
QUOTE Thanks
