Would this hard-drive fit inside my dell studio 1737?

Interface: Serial ATA (SATA-II, 3.0Gbps)
Power Consumption (in Watts @ 5V DC): 1W
Dimensions: 69.85 x 9.5 x 100.3 (W x H x D)

bought from: cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…dll?ViewItem&item=110417894694&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Tried to look for the dimentions of other dell hard-drives but no luck, rep to who ever can confirm it either way

Go to the Dell site and put in your service tag number and you should be able to find out what sort of HD the system was built with - that might help!

so because the samsung ssd drive is 2.5" it'll fit into my laptop? its just i dont want to sound a tit when asking for help installing it off a professional (mind my french)

Just wondering why you'd want to put an SSD drive into a normal laptop?
And whether the existing HD is a SATA connection or not.

Yes, your laptop takes 2.5in Sata drives - the only drives that may not fit are some of the high capacity drives which are slightly taller.
