Default Looking for a Notebook Hard Drive!! Any help!

Hey,

I just bought a 250GB SATA Western Digital Notebook Hard Drive and realized that my laptop uses IDE. I don't know why I thought it used Sata... Anyways the best thing I can find even close to it is this..
Hitachi - Travelstar 200GB Internal Hard Drive for Laptops - 0A55575

I can't find anything above 160GB on Newegg for IDE drives. Maybe I'm just not good at searching. So my question is can anyone find a better drive? I wanted a 250GB Hard Drive IDE with at least 7200RPM. The BestBuy is a 200GB 7200 RPM. Newegg has a similar drive that is in Sata format for more then the Best Buy drive... Why's that? Thanks for any help!

EDIT: This seller has 417 seller ratings wtih 4 of 5 stars. This is a really hot price... But why is it so cheap? Should I go with this?
