Default what internal hard drive i should get for my toshiba 1400-s151 (which has the best fe

Dear members:

can you please help me figure out what internal 9.7 mm (can u tell me please how much is that in inches?) hard drive I should get for my toshiba 1400-s151? I am looking at least 20 GB, useful unique features, and at least 1 and half year warranty. I don't care about getting more GB for my buck because i already have a external 120 GB hard drive (seagate). so that don't matter. However, what i do care about the hd i should get: realiable, fast, and has unique/different featurea other drives don't have. Therfore please let me know, in your opinion, which are the best ones to get? thank you very much

Default Well...

When using Toshiba laptop it's best to stick with Toshiba replacement parts. In the years I have had my Toshiba Tecra they have been very responsive to my inquires and when I do have to have something they get it here johnny on the spot.

9.7 mm is about 3/8 (three eighths) of an inch. Or it was when I went to school in the UK, I don't think it will have changed.

Toshiba's 2.5-inch hard disk drives are just 9.5 mm high and offer the ideal solution for mobile computing and consumer electronics need to deliver more power and functionality. The increasing need for storage has made the 2.5-inch HDD our most popular drive for mobile computing, automotive entertainment systems, and car navigation. Toshiba's reliability and constant innovation allow us to deliver high-quality reliable products with superior performance.
The above quotes text is from Toshiba, that tells you that your drive is 9.7 mm thick.

Go here to these Google links, as there are some good prices to be had for these type drives...
