I am in need of a couple of laptop harddrives

Would prefer WD or Seagate. Any size above 10 GB considered for the IDE. More than 40 GB preferred for SATA drive.
Maximum for both interfaces would be 250 or 320 GB - price dependent.

But will consider whatever is available.

(trying to avoid the exorbitant prices on TM)

What size hdd was in it? If you want a bigger hdd (than the one that was in it), I would update the BIOS first. Otherwise, it may not support it

ROTFL... that seems to be the motto of this forum - "flash the BIOS"

For the record, I was given some freebie laptops; ex-company - condition unknown.
No harddrives, and no power adapters

Considering 3 of the laptops are Pentium M or Core Duo; I don't think HD size will be much of an issue
