Laptop/notebook hard drives

By jmm2564 ·
I just bought a Averatec 1000series AV1050-EB1 notebook and I need more hard drive space. Atleast 250gb or more. Is there any larger hard drive larger than 160gb? And can it work with my system? You can call me at 3403442895 or 6785249399

The largest NB HDD available commonly is around the 120 GIG mark. I've just had a quick look at one of the Wholesale Price Lists to see how big they currently go.

However having said that it's possible that the BIOS Will Not support a drive much bigger than the one that is currently installed. Not to mention the Power Requirements which could prevent a different HDD being installed.

As the other poster hare has said it's much better to use External HDD through a Firewire connection that is much faster than a USB 2 connection. That way you can go to 400 + GIG capacity with out a problem and at very little expense compared to the cost of 2.5 inch HDD which are smaller & slower than their 3.5 inch bigger brothers.
