IDE harddrive, 120G or 100G. 5400RPM.
8MB CACHE, quiet one will be preferrable

Any best deal? :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Do you want an 3.5" or 2.5" drive?
You say you want a laptop drive so I assume you mean a 2.5". But can you confirm this :)

I recommend that because Seagate hdd's are the best in my opinion ive been using them for years!

When you work in IT you quickly learn: "assumption is the mother of all f*** ups"

They did exist once! Got the door stop to prove it :p
As you knwo H4x3r, sometimes people ask IT questions that make no logiocal sense. Hence qualify, qualify, qualify...

Here's a question for you then?
Is a 7200 generally noiser than a 5400? Or do you think it would depend too heavily on sorage capacity, saved data on board, and rig it is in (temp affected wise)?

I'd think that 5400 is queiter but thats a stab in the dark - guess it depends what function you're applying to the drive.

blah blah blah etc etc...

I run a 10k raptor on my rig and thought it would be one noisey mofo. But it's pretty quiet even at full speed, but yes it is low in capacity so not that much disk to read. I agree it depends on manufacturer too.
