Currently 1 TB is the largest capacity for notebook drives. Check them out at OWC.

As big as you want! (up to 1TB) Make sure that it meets your specs, 2.5in so that it fits in your machine. Take a look at your MacBook Pro User Manual that was included with your Mac. An SSD is the best route if you ask me. It will cost more, but it's well worth it. Take a look at OCZ for Mac SSDs, any other company such as Toshiba, Hitachi will work fine for a rotating disk. 7200RPM is the faster speed for a conventional spinning disk.

As Kappy mentions, 1TB is the biggest available on a single drive. And then you have to be careful that it fits, since some makers switched from the original 9.5mm thickness to 12.5mm. An alternative if you can live without the optical drive is removing it and putting a second drive in its place.There are conversion kits available that give you a carriage to hold the HDD and screw it in place.
