Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
You may have been led to believe, or assume that some companies use proprietary hard disc drives in their Notebook PCs...Not the case at all!!!
Most Notebook PCs (laptops) use *
Ultra ATA 2.5" internal Hard Drives (HDD)
Even Dell, Gateway, Sony, etc..
*Note that Ultra ATA is also known as ATA-6.
So don't pay extra for a so-called proprietary type hard drive,
Just go online and find a compatible Drive to replace it.
Also, keep in mind that although your original HD might be a 4500 rpm
speed HD, You can use a faster one, like a 5400 RPM. (a 7200 rpm drive
will consume a little more power than you want and can tend to increase temperatures, so be aware).
I just thought everyone who doesn't know that, to know that.
I'll be posting more tips/tricks/advice whenever something comes to mind.
....There ya have it!
