Need basic advice on replacement HDD for laptop

I have a Compaq Presario A900 laptop currently running Ubuntu. I'd like to replace the existing HD (120Gb) with a much larger one (1Tb) but I'm unsure as to what might be suitable. Presumably, I don't need to buy an HD that is specifically listed as being for this particular laptop?

According to my Disk Utility the laptop has a SATA adapter:

vendor: Intel
model: 82801HBM/HEM (ICH8M/ICH8M-E) SATA AHCI controller

Can anyone recommend a suitable 1Tb internal replacement HD. Any advice or help much appreciated.
