    Which country do you live in? Update your profile. I could suggest some UK sites, but if you don't live in the UK that won't help :eek:

    Anyway moving on you can use an 2.5" 9.5mm tall SATA hard drive. The easiest way to copy your data is to buy a USB enclosure with the drive and the use SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner (the free version are fine) to make a bootable copy of your existing drive. Then swap them over and you are done.

    Any 9 mm tall 2.5" drive will work. Every computer store sells them.
