I believe that you can use any standard 2.5" SATA laptop hard drive. As for a website/guide, try this. You will need a USB flash drive/external HDD to backup your old data onto.

+ Good link. Pretty good intel.


Excellent source and welcome +


+ 160GB would be a lot better, however you might consider the extra $10 or so for a 250 or 320GB. stick with a 5400RPM....Just my 2cents, I could not help myself even thou it's not the question. Cost per GB. etc.....


if you are going to upgrade i would def make it a 7200 rpm instead of a 5400..also just my 2 cents


Nice thanks guys?
