Yes, you can upgrade the HD for a SSD. You'll need to make sure the unit you get is SATA II (3.0 Gb/s).

You may want to consider going with a cheaper option. How about going with a SSHD instead. These hybrid drives have a SSD for the speed and offer a traditional HD for the deep storage. Here's the Seagate unit: Seagate Laptop SSHD. The 9.5 mm unit is what you need. These drives also have auto-SATA sensing so it will work without any problems.

I do recommend you make sure your systems firmware is up to date as well here before you do any alterations. Here's the Apple TN on how to check and update: EFI and SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs

There is no MBP 13" fall 08 - first MPB 13" was late 09.

You have a MacBook Unibody late 08. As long as the SSD form fits and the SATA is 3GB/s it will work.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it accepted.
