My HP DV6 came with a 500GB SATA laptop drive -- but I wanted better performance, so I replaced that with a Kingston 500GB SATA SSD.  Runs a lot faster now.  You should consider doing the same as SATA SSD prices have come way down.

I personally would recommend Samsung drives, if you can find them on a good sale. Make sure to get the SATA version if you are replacing a hard drive.
