Correct, it is the hard drive that keeps all your information. Depending on how much you want for the laptop depends on the size of the hard drive you want to put back in it.
For example: A 20GB hard drive in a laptop is going to be much less after XP and Office etc have been installed so if you would like MORE money id suggest replacing with a bigger hard drive. Again this just depends on how much youd like to sell it for. Hope ive helped.
