Faster laptop HDD

Hello everyone.

I want to upgrade the HDD on my HP Pavillion zd8000 laptop, as I get the impression it's hardly tge fastest thing around.

Can anyone suggest a fast make/model HDD 80GB in size or larger?

Thanks!

i would check if you can upgrade the ram too - this will speed up your system even more than the disk drive.
