Re: Laptop hard drive confusion
Oh, to answer the OP's question, ATA-100, ATA-6 and ATA-5 are all pretty much the same. If you get an ATA-6 drive it will clock down to match ATA-5. PATA is just the classification of these drives. Like SATA drives can be called "Serial ATA" drives, the original tech drives (ATA) have been dubbed PATA for "Parallel ATA"
