You'll need to get another SATA 2.5 inch drive. You'll also want to be comfortable working with very small screws as there are a few to remove and replace during the hard disc swap process. Depending on your needs this could be a good time to get a larger 7200RPM disc or possibly make the move to SSD and see a nice performance boost with less overall data storage, but better battery life.

Depending on your Dell you may have to swap a drive carrier from the original drive to the new drive.

Make sure you have a good backup of your important data, probably best to use your Dell System discs to install Windows on the new drive and not clone potentially corrupt files from the old drive.
