Otherwise, be on the lookout for 2.5", 9.5 mm and parallel ATA only, 120GB or smaller.
THANKS!! Appreciate the reply buwish. I spoke with a firm Drive Solutions out in California, they do have a 80 GB in stock 5400rpm Dell for $68 (expensive?) and the gentleman told me that there would be another $27 in shipping to the Toronto area. He went on to say that you can only expand the 2 memory slots to a total of 1 GB (via 2 512's)--unsure but do you know enough about this laptop to verify that?? I wouldn't mind getting a 1 GB bar of memory and maybe got to 1.5 or 2gb--worth it? Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions, I am bringing this laptop back from the dead as it was a hand me down from my uncle(about 8 years old) and I don't wanna invest too much. As far as my needs/usage: mostly streaming videos, emailing, poker, no gaming and general surfing and light downloading.
