Yo, im getting a laptop with a 320 GB hard disk drive, the HP 1125 ee, here's the link:-

but i want a larger disk drive, so:-
1 - would it be cheaper to change it to a larger hard drive? OR:-
2 - buy an external hard drive with an E-SATA interface? OR:-
3 - if option 2 is expensive, would it be cheaper to buy an INTERNAL DESKTOP hard drive that uses a SATA interface, and get a SATA-TO-ESATA adaptor?
4 - any other suggestions?

P.S. - i dont want an external drive with a USB interface as its just too slow for me...

so, what do u guys think?...

considering that the largest laptop drive today is 500GB, i would suggest getting a 3.5" drive and getting a nice enclosure for it. esata capable one of course
