  1. Best answer
    Seems Sony—like other online retailers—don't make this kind of info easily available. Your best bet is to look for a shop carrying this laptop, pretend to try using it, then going to Device Manager. The hard disk model number should be listed there.

    And yes, generally 7200rpm hard disks are reliable, unless you unfortunately buy a lemon, which you can always return.
  2. Have you asked the seller what drives are being sold with the Sony? Why don't you do your own leg work on this? The 7200RPM drive will run hotter and faster...Reliability is somewhere in the MTBF of 300,000 hours, 5 to 7+ years...
  3. Believe me i spent time with their direct chat folks, called their technical folks and they claim that is proprietarty type info and/or just don't have the info available. So the answer is I have done my leg work but go no where.
