So long as you fit the same type of Drive ie SATA or IDE and the size is the same ie 3.5 inch or 2.5 inch, you can fit any drive you want. In your case the existing drive is a 500GB, SATA 2, 2.5 inch drive. Pick any drive of that type. The more expensive ones will spin at 7200rpm whereas the cheaper ones at 5400rpm so have slightly faster access times but they can run hotter requiring good cooling and can make a bit more background noise.

Forgot to add that size does not matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just looking at those Chronos.

So this one would do the job.

That will be fine, but it does not have to be Western Digital as I said any 2.5 Sata HDD will fit.
