Internal Hard Drive question
      #43881 - 12/11/12 04:48 PM

I am looking to replace a head drive from my Lenovo ThinkPad. Can someone explain the specs of hard drives to me as well as give me recommendation on brands and a price that you would buy it at?

Thank You

Many computer components have practically limitless aspects you could theoretically measure. For example, for a hard drive, you could measure the capacity, seek time, read rate, write rate, failure rate, weight, warranty, and customer satisfaction rates - just to name a few.

I think your posts might get more responses if you could ask more specific questions.

Think of it this way - if someone asked, "Explain everything about cars and pick one for me," you might not know what to say.

As far as hard drives go specifically, I would ask you what your priorities are among the following three issues: high speed, large capacity, and low price. With current market conditions, a very rough estimate would be to say that you can have any two of those three things, but probably not all three.
