Maximum size for Hard Disk in Lenovo 3000 N100

I have the Lenovo 3000 N100

it came with 100 GB Hard Disk 5400 RPM

What is the maximum Hard Disk that can be used. Can it be of 7200 RPM or only 5400 RPM?

Thanks for possible reply

You can go as high as the currently available 500GB hard drive in either 7200RPM or 5400 RPM. It must be a 2.5" SATA with a standard 9.5mm height. These are widely available and you shouldn't have any problems finding one at a decent price. If you want more performance, go for a 7200RPM drive.

No, I'm basing this on the allignment of the planets. Smiley Wink Just kidding.

 

I'm basing this on experience with cheaper, lower quality laptops supporting better hard drives, processors, etc., etc.

Also the fact that some N100 configurations included a 250GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive. No reason why a 7200RPM drive won't work.

You are welcome to seek advice elsewhere.

Re: Maximum size for Hard Disk in Lenovo 3000 N100

@ortegaluis: my hard disk crashed a few days back (i have 3000 n100 and currently running the machine on a 1 gb pen drive Smiley Happy)

was planning to buy a 320/500 GB hdd : seagate or western digital or hitachi (since hitachi was the one intially installed)

Could you please tell me, which one would be best? (it seems you have experience in the field)

Do i need to look for specs any other than these: 7200 rpm, 2.5" ?

 

Thanks

 

PS:  all those who want to know possible behaviors of hard disks before crashes, visit http://datacent.com/datarecovery/hdd/hitachi . Mine gave a clicking sound exactly like the one on the page. Worked for a few days before giving up. If you hear similar sounds, back up your data immediately unless you want to loose it like i did Smiley Sad

Thanks for reply

Unfortunately I have replaced my 100 GB 5400 rpm hard disk with one of 160 Gb 7200 rpm. This is what I was advised by the Lenovo local support center in Israel.

Again thanks, Abraham
