As title, looking for the cheapest internal 2.5" IDE/PATA drive of at least 160GB to upgrade an older laptop.

I was amazed to find it takes a PATA drive actually as it's a dual-core Intel Core CPU. SATA drives were well into the mainstream by the time original Cores came about...


You dont want 160GB , you want more...and I give you more !!!!

320GB for 37 notes

Thanks Jacob - the 160GB Samsung is a great price :thumbsup:

As I expected/saw, the PATA driver larger than 160GB just aren't worth it on a £/GB basis. 160GB still doubles what's in there so my sister will be happy. Rep given.
