I'm swapping out the 40 GB HDD on my year old Toshiba Satellite A65 laptop with a 100 GB. I'd like to replace the original 10 GB HDD in my prehistoric IBM ThinkPad 390E with that 40 GB HDD that I pull out.
Before I do, I'd like to make sure that that I'm not overloading the system with something that's going to suck a lot more power than the old 10 HDD required. My assumption is that the power requirements are holding steady or declining even tho the storage capacity is increasing. But, that's not even an educated guess.
So, if it were you, would you feel reasonably comfortable making replacing the 10 GB HDD with the 40?
