    The hard drive is sounding like it will die at any moment, it's an Hitachi 250GB HTS723225L9SA62. Can I just replace it with any 2.5inch SATA drive?

    Yep... it is just a standard 2.5" laptop drive.

    early-2008 with the Nvidia 8600 video card?

    get something reasonable that you can take with you to your next laptop (as an external drive).

    you don't want to stick too much money into a laptop with the 8600...
