I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

200-300Gb isnt going to be possible at the moment 160gb is currently the largest drive made for 2.5" ata-6. Currently the largest laptop drive available is 200gb but its a sata drive so it won't work in the d410.
I would go with a seagate drive
