laptop hard drive question, dell 700m
    #3786675 - 02/16/05 12:50 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So I'm thinking about buying a used laptop. It comes with a 30 gig 4200 rpm drive. I was wondering if it was worth getting a 5400 or a 7200 hard drive for the 700m. Also I don't know much about laptops, I've always been a desktop guy, especially because you can't build your own laptop.

Is it easy to switch out the hard drives?
I'm looking at Newegg and who makes the best drives? Fijutsu, Seagate, Toshiba?

Easy as hell to switch, if you got the cash buy a 7200 it'll make a nice difference. Seagates are quiet as hell so i usually chooose them. But really with lappy hd's just get the one with the longest warranty because those are prone to taking a dive more often due ot the constant movements

Only bad thing about 7200s in laptops is that they create alot of heat spinning that fast, so if it's an already hot laptop then look into a laptop cooling pad.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe
