I am considering the purchase of a refurb latop (Latitude E4310) from a company with decent reviews.  It would have WIN 7 Pro 64 bit as an OS.  The problem is the hard drive which is too small.  I have a Seagate 500G that I could replace it with but would the OS be transferrable?  I tried to buy a retail WIN7 with no luck at finding one.

Hi,
 
Yes you can clone the drive to the new disk. Seagate offers you a special version of Acronis True image called DiscWizard that can do that task without any problem you only need to connect both drives to the machine for example using and USB adapter like this or this.
