Default Hard drive for a laptop.

I have a friend that has an older hp n3350. It may be 3 years old or older, I am not sure. His hard drive is small and is totally full. He has put it over to xp which takes up a lot of the space but wants to keep xp because of all his programs. The hdd is 2.5". Will it take a special hdd or should any 2.5" work?

Any 2.5" should work, he needs to check that it can handle newer HD's like Maxtor and Western. He can probably hit ATA-100 max. Here is a 30GB HDD, for $49.00.
