You don't need any specific model. You can install any 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD. You can still use hard drives over the maximum amount of storage of the MacBook Pro, it just won't address all of the space.

Man this sucks. I upgraded the memory to this to 4gb, and also put a brand new 500gb hd in my lappy. And it still gets to beginning blue screen and freezes. Takes forever to get past it. Think this could be the motherboard ? What other options do I have besides getting a new one lol. Click image for larger version

It could be two things, either one you didnt ground your self when you touched the inside of your computer or two if you have the GT 8600m its beginning to fail the same thing with ATI X1600.

"Beginning blue screen"? Aren't all Apple's boot screens Gray or Black? Heck even kernel panics are gray/black.
