Wishing to upgrade hardrive of Think Pad 2530 - z60m, from 100MB to 300MB

I am trying to upgrade my computer to Vista Business, but I only have about 42MB left of hard drive capacity. Does anybody knows what the difference is between 300GB 5400 RPM Universal SATA - 8MB and 300GB 7200 RPM Universal SATA -16MB.

 

I aqppreciate your advise, and thank you in advance.

The difference is the speed and buffer, the latter drive being faster and having twice the buffer and it will perform a lot better than the first one.

 

Please be advised that you have to stay with 32-bit Vista on your Z60m, 64-bit will not install on it.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

George
