Hello all!
I am searching for a 2tb 2.5" hdd tht will fit in a laptop. My model is a p370em, currently running with an msata ssd. I have no idea what kind of hard disks can fit in a laptop since I never owned one before! The only one I've found is a this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and I'm not even sure it's compatible/can fit in my laptop! Can someone help me better understand what can fit/is compatible with my laptop?

Thanks for the replies.
So, would I be able to fit in two 1 Tb drives or am I stuck with one?

Most laptops only have space for one hard drive.

The Clevo p370em can accommodate 2 SATA HDDs. You could certainly add 2 1TB drives such as this one:

Also, if you go to this link, you can see many options that will work with this model system:

Sweet! Thanks for the links COLGeek, I didn't know it could accomodate 2 hdds.
Do you mind if I ask which brand is better? Toshiba, Samsung or Seagate? They all cost nearly the same...

Seagate would give the best performance; Toshiba drives aren't known for speed. Reliability isn't too different.

Personally, I have had great luck with Samsung HDDs. However, they are all pretty good. Look for a 7200 rpm HDD for the best performance.

Alright then, I think I'll choose seagate. Thanks again for the advice!
