You can use any 2.5"-SATA disk with 9.5mm height.

It depends on what you mean with "it supports". HDDs with SATA II interface will work with your notebook but you will not be able to use the full speed of the interface.

Current HDDs (2.5", 5400rpm) can't support SATA II, since the hardware can't provide more than 70GB/s. Other HDDs (3.5", 10000rpm) might give you twice of that but are still far away even from 1.5Gb/s

I'm pretty sure that it will work. At least I know other users who made 250GB work in this notebook.
