New hard drive for HP 4550 ze

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an older laptop that I would like to put a bigger, faster hard drive in (the original is only 40gb). It says the original is an Enhanced IDE. Does anyone have any suggestions on what is the best option is for an upgrade?
Thanks in advance for any replies

Anything will do. Personally I would stick with WD. They pioneered the EIDE protocol.

What models were you looking at? Anything in the 7200 RPM Range? What is your current HDD's RPM? Do you have the serial number?

It's a standard protocol.... WD didn't pioneer it. It was developed via committee.

Being such a old HDD, his best bet is checking eBay. Anything new would probably be worth more than half the cost of the laptop.
Once again...

I didn't say they developed it. They were the first to release EIDE and pretty much ran with it. Google it.
