    Buying laptop hard drive (internal)

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me UK based stores where I can buy internal hard drive for my laptop. I don;t have much knowledge in this field. Just to make sure that I don;t pick a wrong hard drive, I was hoping to enter my laptop model on a website and in return get the applicable HDD model for that laptop. I did a google and came across a few websites but they are all US based. (for example http://www.upgradecomputermemory.com/).

    Is there a similar UK based website? (trying to save on P+P, customs and warranty issues)

    Cheers!

    you would be best off putting the details of the laptop and the size of the drive speed etc on here and someone will help you. Usually there are websites such as ebuyer that will have good prices on. im not sure there is anywhere that will check your hard drive. You will need a 2.5 " hard drive it just depends on what type your lasptop supports

    What brand and model is your laptop - as a starting point?

    It is a SATA hard drive.

    Ok, really then any 2.5" SATA hard drive should work just fine.



    Are they all standard size? How would I know if that will fit inside my laptop? ( I mean in terms of physical dimensions?)

    Yep they are all a standard size (2.5"), you just screw it into the place of your old one.
