Default Need a bigger hard drive

My hard drive got destroyed on this laptop
Acer Aspire 7540-1317 Specs - CNET
I paid someone to install a terrible 150gb hard drive into it that was from an old broken laptop.
I am wondering if someone can provide a link for a 500gb hard drive. I dont want to run into complications of it not being compatible of some sort. Idk anything about this

Yes, it will work.

7200RPM will make things seems a little faster actually, assuming your old drive is 5400RPM.
