Yes, that is what I needed.
Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
Replacement drives are listed in Chapter 3 on page 32.
Using that info I have some recommendations and you can do what you want with them.
You have the choice of a SATA II 5,400 RPM drive like you have now or a SATA II 7,200 RPM drive. The difference is that a 7,200 RPM drive will give you faster seek times (performance) than a 5,400 RPM drive will, but it will be at the expense of battery life between charges.
So if staying on battery power for a longer time between charges is more important to you, then go with a 5,400 RPM drive.
Here is a link to a website where I get my hard drives from. I like it because it has a lot of user reviews on many of the drives.
Depending on what you are looking for, my first choice would be this one:
and in a 5,400 RPM model, this one.
Now there is this 7,200 320 GB model on sale...
