What exactly do I need to be sure in the spec to have it compatible with my laptop .... will any sata 2.5 drive do ?

Remove the one in the Laptop, it should be easy to do, just two screws at the edge of Laptop or under a plate at the bottom. no need to take the laptop apart to remove it. Name etc will be on it

Yep, it is the drive in the link above - a samsung HM080HI

I haven't found anywhere that has them in stock so I'm wondering if any 2.5 sata drive will do ?

Hitachi should do as long as you buy the right one Sata or IDE Buy one as fast as you can afford as this does make a difference to speed of a Laptop 7200rpm if you can get one
