I have to get a new hard drive for my 2008 MacBook Pro 17in. Will it take an SSD and if so can you recommend one? As the failing hard drive is 160GB and equivalent (or even slightly smaller) SSD would do.

Many thanks

Sure...you can install an SSD in a 17" 2008 MBP ...here's one place to check them out:
