Default Replace Laptop HD

Hello,

Want to replace an old laptop HD (40 GB ATA/IDE), it's a dell about 5 yrs old. The interface appears to be 40 pins. Can I just order any ATA/IDE HD (2.5 form factor) and it will work? Newegg shows "IDE ULTRA ATA100/ATA-6" and "IDE ULTRA ATA133/ATA-7"...does it matter which one of these I order?

Thank you!

I believe it does not matter the ATA rating. To make sure though, what is your full model number of your laptop?

But yes, you do need an IDE 2.5 HDD.
