Form factor of 2.5".

 

I recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148374&cm_re=momentus-_-22-148-374-_-Product

 

It's huge (500GB), fast (7200 RPM, 16 MB cache), and cheap ($91 shipped). I had that exact drive in my MBP and it was quite nice.

Thanks for the reply Yigit. Unfortunately, the posts do not address my main concern...simply getting the right HD for my Lenovo y430. Specifically, what drives will work, what dimensions am I limited to, etc.
