why 2.5"? I'd get 3.5", that's way cheaper (and I have 2.5" -> 3.5" IDE converter) but feel free to get anything you like. probably best not to start with fastest most expensive drive, you know - start with something cheap from ebay and if experiment goes well and disk works 100% w/o any glitches - then go ahead and buy that $300 humongous perpendicular seagate notebook drive :)

yeah, I mean really why don't you start with cheap 3.5" for pennies off ebay and if it works - you do the proper thing then with nice big 2.5" hdd. is $20 for an old drive worth risking for? are you real greedy or experimenter in your soul? find the answer inside your inner self, man! :))
