Default Re: replacing laptop hard drive

I know how fragile regular drives are first hand!

You just have to tell him to go easy flinging them around. You could suggest SSD's if he's willing to pay, but the cheaper option's definitely HDD; plus I hear WD HDD's have pretty high tolerance's nowadays.

Thanks, well to be fair they're cheaper than I thought, and because he doesn't have much data it probably wouldn't be much more expensive, I've actually considered something like this for my desktop computer now Sandisk 64GB SSD SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SDSSDP-064G-G25) - dabs.com
