Compaq Presario 2500

harddrive is a 30gb 2.5" Hitachi Travelstar

unfortunately the hard drive had failed, and the laptop is out of warranty. I need to replace the harddrive would any 2.5" notebook drive be ok? And if anyone knows of any good deals that would be great, best I see is ~ $60 shipped for a western digital that has some reviews regarding defective units...

Even 20gb is adequate for this notebook's use.

$60 is cheap for a laptop hard drive. they're more expensive then desktop ones. Any standard drive will be OK. For a bit more info look here

The 20 gig laptop drives on newegg were $54. For only $5 more you can have a Fujitsu 40 gig 5400 rpm drive. I won't buy used laptop drives. I've had too many fail quickly. I've also bought from some internet companys that either would not honor warrantees or just disappeared within a year leaving me holding bad drives. I now buy only from reputable companys like newegg.
