    Providing the WD Scorpio is no taller than your current drive (highly unlikely), I think it will be fine.

    Sata is the connector type, that's the same.
    2.5" is the width of the drive, same.
    The height is the other factor to consider (usually less than 10.5mm, 9.5mm is common), I don't think I've seen a new laptop hdd in the last few years that is taller. Physical measurements should be on the outer packaging if you need to check.

    If the price is right, buy it :)

    No, that's it just put it in.

    Obviously use a Windows Setup CD to install Windows if you want that installed
