Default Laptop Hard Drives

Apparently HP DV5000T allows you to replace the HDD, what type of HDDs can fit inside the laptop, anyone know? Or is it just basic computer HDDs?

oh also when i did a search for your laptop it said its SATA, but please double check that as i dont want you to buy the wrong part. do you know what the difference in look is between the 2 ? so you can take your current hard drive out to make sure it has that interface.

Laptop hardrives are always a **** nuisance.
