I have a 15" macbook pro 4,1 core 2 duo 2.4 GHz 2GB ram

I need to replace the hard drive Fujitsu mhy2200bh 200GB Its making some faint clicking all of the time and i

think its on the way out. I am thinking of getting the

Seagate Momentus 5400.6 2.5-inch 320GB SATA 5400 rpm 8MB cache

Amazon Seagate Momentus 5400.6 2.5-inch Hard Drive, 320 GB, SATA , 5400 RPM, 8 MB Cache: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Will this it fit OK in my macbook pro and what do you think of it?

I don't know whether it is good or bad, but I know that it will fit since it's 2.5-inch.

When I had my C2D MBP I upgraded my drive to this one.

500GB 7200RPM Seagate Momentus, it came as a kit. With a external hard drive enclosure to put the OEM drive in and also the tool's needed to replace it.

And I used the walk through from iFixIt.com
