Does anyone know of any Dell laptop I can purchase from Dell currently that has easy access to the hard drive to switch it out?

Dell laptops no... but IBMs yes... I've an X20 (yes it's old...) and I can easily take out the harddrive...
Why specifically Dells anyway ?

Far the most of the Dell laptops has interchangable parts (Battery, RAM, CPU and harddrive is the most frequent ones, graphics card on others)

So any will do, just remember that they only can hold 2.5" (all) harddrives, and some others will also hold 1.8" harddrives.

My current Dell is an 1100 series inspirion, and you can only change the RAM/battery


I have a laptop hard drive that has important files on it, that she needs to get off, so I need a new laptop to buy where I can hook it up, and get the files off of it. She's getting a new laptop regardless, but she still needs to get those files off of, and hooking it up to a new laptop once we get it, is the only way I can think to do it.
