imo, any laptop sata hardddisk will do - you can pick 5400 rpm ones, or 7200 rpm if you like - even SSD, which will give you a real boost

Nobus is correct. The others are only showing the hard drive options at the time of purchase. I would definately stay away from 5400 RPM drives.

You will be able to install any sata HDD. If it were me, i would upgrade to a 7200rpm. much better performance than the 5400rpm ones.

Thanks for the points but they all should have gone to nobus.

The other comments were either repeating what he said or just plain wrong.
