I can't give prices, you're best calling Apple to be honest.

However, it's a user serviceable part if you're happy to do it yourself.

Which MacBook Pro do you have and what size hard disk do you want to install?

15" 2009 McBook has 500gb may get bigger fitted if price is ok

Depends on how big you want your drive to be and your budget.

As an example a 1tb Samsung 5400rpm drive will cost you 83. But there are other choices.
SATA II - 400GB - 1TB - Scan.co.uk

Spend another 10-12 on a enclosure and you can use your 500gb drive as external storage too.
Enclosure (1.8"-2.5") - SATA - Scan.co.uk

Installation is easy and with an enclosure cloning the existing OSX install acroos to the new drive with Carbon Copy Cloner is quick and easy too.
