Can anyone recommend me a good and fast HDD for my laptop?

Hello.

I need a new 2,5" hard drive for my laptop, because my 640gb is not enough for me at the moment and i'm starting to think that mine's getting more problematic as time goes by...

So I was thinking of getting this one, because I can get it at an accessible price and i've heard very good things about it (i think the only bad things i heard about it is that, in this day and age, SSD's completely overshadow it). It's got 1TB, 7200RPM and a 32MB Cache, sounds great to me. Since I can't afford a SSD+HDD combo, I wanted you guys to recommend me a good HDD for my laptop that's both fast and big, or tell me if that one is worth getting.

I'd like anything with 1tb or more, and my budget is about 110$ but the lower the price the better =P

Thank you for your time.

Last month I bought this Seagate Momentus hybrid 500gb. It has 8gb of nand memory and it boots my lap top pretty fast. I added the $15 2 year Square Trade warranty. It's a refurb done by Seagate and has the sticker on it stating it is a refurb and has a 90 day Seagate warranty. SMART shows it is in 100% perfect health. I think it's a good buy considering these are $170 at Amazon.
