Hi there recently i've been thinking of upgrading my Acer 6935G's Hard Drive. At the minute from what I have checked I have a Seagate Momentus 5400rpm 250GB 2.5" HDD. Online I have found a 2.5" Seagate Momentus 500GB 7200.4rpm HDD Which i am going to buy, one thing that puts me off is that it says it's "Sata-300" which I have never come across before. Will this hdd be compatible to replace my current drive?
"SATA-300" is a poor slang, VERY likely meaning SATA II. The proper term is SATA 3 Gb/s. A lot of people convert Gb (Gigabits) to GB (Gigabytes) by simply dividing by 10 - a reasonable approximation. 3 Gb = 3,000 Mb = 300 MB. and that's where the "300" comes from.
