You need a Serial ATA (1.5 Gb/s) 2.5 form drive. I found several on Goolge in about a half-a-minute ranging in price from $20 (used) to <200.00 and from 80 to 500GB in size.

Do not buy a new SAT III (3-6GB/s) drive they will not work.

Pick your poison.

I don't think so it's InterfaceSATA 3.0Gb/s - they require you to also purchase an external case (why?) contact them (or any vendor) for a guarantee/warranty it will work so you don't get stuck with restock charges.
