My laptop used to have a 250 GB hard drive, but then it randomly died a while ago. I sent it to a family friend technician who replaced the hard drive, but the problem is that he replaced it with one with only 100 GB. I used a lot of the 250 GB, so I was very upset to see this.
Now I have saved up enough money to buy a new hard drive with more space, and I want to attempt to install it myself. The only problem is that I have absolutely no clue what type of hard drive to buy. Also, would buying one with a lot of space impact the performance of the laptop at all? It already gets pretty hot sometime, so I don't want to completely kill it by overworking it.
