Only one from Dell will go straight in (I know I have the same laptop).

Any 2.5 HD that's sata I or II will fit the bay, but if you don't buy Dell (which is VERY expensive), you'll need a caddy and a sata converter as the pins on the 1735 end are none standard.
There are kits on ebay with all the bits you need inc. Price, last time I looked, was about $35 plus shipping...

thanks.. would you reccommend getting one then, or just stick with the external hdd's which seem to be cheaper? How much more weight does it add to the laptop, which i'm sure you know is quite heavy :thumbsup:

Personally I use an external WD 320 gig passport drive, then I can use it on any pc or the media player.

But it really depends on what you're using the laptop for ?
The weight of a 2.5 drive is next to nothing in relation to the weight of a 1735.
