Default Swapping a laptop harddrive.

so how hard is it usually to swap out a laptop harddrive? I just bought a brand new dell inspiron 1525 with a 120gb hdd, but im not sure how long that is going to last me.

I haven't swapped a HDD in a laptop, but it doesn't look very hard. Check out this link from CNET: http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-11379_7-6445033-1.html

This will go through and explain about cloning, what size HDD to get, Removing, and installing the new HDD.

depending on where it is its usually very easy,

as soon as you find it all you do is unscrew it remove it from laptop, take te actual drive out of the cage and then put the new drive in the cage then in the laptop,
