Need help with new laptop hard drive! Tags: Hard Drives Laptops Storage Product Last response: January 19, 2009 11:17 PM in Storage Share goldenp51 January 19, 2009 10:31:08 PM My mom has a Gateway NX860XL, which has a Seagate Momentus Model number: ST910021AS hard drive in it. She wants an upgrade because it lacks the amount of memory she wants. She would like something with like 320 gigs....I haven't done a hard drive swap for a laptop before, how do I know which drives will fit in her laptop? I was looking at one of these two, will they work/fit? Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9320421AS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive (Bare drive) or Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive THANK YOU!!!

Also, if you can wait a bit, the Momentus 7200.4, in capacities up to 500GB, will be available soon. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
