Win 7 Professional x86

Hi and thanks again for the responses and many tips and info. Its greatly appreciated.

I wasn't planning on cloning the old one, I ll hopefully have my Win7 disk by then so might as well go for a clean slate. But none the less its something to think about.

Apologies for the placement in the wrong section....I, initially, was gonna place it in "hardware" section, then realized it wasn't a "strictly speaking" Win 7 question so didn't wanna seem rude.

Many thanks again

There's a lot of good hard drives out there.
Samsung, Hitachi and Fujitsu are very power-miserly (and good).
The WD blues are highly rated too. I just put a WD2500BEVT ($55) in a Samsung laptop for someone. Dead silent, very fast.

If you are looking at Seagates, the newer 7200.4 is not only faster than the older versions but uses less power.... less power than many 5400rpm drives. Newegg has a 250GB on sale for $59.99, free shipping (not sure about Canada) and another 10% off with code: EMCHDD10C (ends today). - Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive
