Re: Replacing Laptop Hard Drive
that'll work fine. 2 things though, 1, if you're going to replace it with the WD drive, you'll be going from a 5400rpm drive to a 7200rpm drive. that means faster speeds when you're loading your OS or accessing files, but you'll take a hit on your battery life. Not a whole lot, I wouldn't think over 7%-8% but something to think about if you'd prefer battery life over speed. Secondly if you're replacing the drive make sure you back up all your data so you can move it over onto the new drive.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
