Any 2.5" wide x 7mm or 9.5mm high SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive (SSD) will fit your laptop, but if it were me I would go with a SSD, because a SSD will breath new life into an older laptop.    

 

If you are running Windows 10 and your laptop only has 4GB of RAM, you might also consider upgrading it to the 8GB max as well.

 

Crucial is a good source for both, but there are of course many other manufacturers out there.
