Can I point you to harddrive forum? It's one of the resources for PC mods/enthusiasts specific to your question.

i wanted like a link to a store
If you are just looking for a deal, you can check out sites like or If you are trying to decide what is the best for your price range, you would need to know what your laptop is being used for and size/features you need to match. If you are looking to just replace a drive, maybe you might want to spend part of the cost on more RAM.

The 160GB appears to have many more features for the same price, but they don't necessarily mean anything. Mostly I notice that the Seagate (160GB) has a full 5-year warranty, while the Western Digital has none. Judging by the reviews, they both seem relatively reliable, but the Seagate at least has a safety net if it fails.
I'd also like to point out that in 5 years 160GB will probably be obsolete anyway.
