I have an old IBM Travelstar 48Gb 2.5inch x 12.5mm laptop hard drive which runs at 5400 RPM and is developing lots of bad sectors.
I want to replace it but am having difficulty choosing a new HDD that is suitable.
It is going into an existing DELL Inspiron 8100 as the C drive running Windows 2000 as the operating system.
I can get hold of another IBM Travelstar 48Gb for about £60 but would prefer some more room so I am looking for approx 80Gb in storage. I like the look of Seagate but all their drives are too high at 25mm. Any suggestions on ones to buy that are the right dimensions?
I assume any similar size Mini (2.5 inch) HDD that runs at up to 7800rpm and has either ATA-100 or SATA will be able to be set up on the machine?
cheers in advance for any help.
