Hi all. My first post here.
I am feeling very cramped on my z61p. I want a 320 GB 7200 rpm disk at least.
I am looking at a Travelstar 7K320. (Lenovo does not list any 7200 rpm disks larger than 100GB?)
Could there be any issues? Any thoughts?

I am now chosing between Hitachi, Seagate and Western Digital. All have 320 GB 7200 rpm 2.5" drives.
They have very similar specs, but the average seek time differs surprisingly much:
WD: 4.2 ms
Hitachi also have 3 year warranty when the others have 5. And to top it off it os not the cheapest.
Does anyone have any additional info I should consider?
Step 2. How do I transfer the pre-boot area from my old drive?

It all depends on what's most important to you...Seagate and WD are little noisier than Hitachi, but nothing in my experience beats Seagate's longevity...
Hope this helps.
