Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hi, i have bought a twinhead P14N laptop and it is without a hard drive. Can you please advise me which hard drive i shold buy? am confused of the number and brands of hard drive that i saw. thanks

Answers :

Any PATA(ata-6) 2.5 inch harddrive should be compatible. I believe those shipped with a 20gig drive. You can find a drive on newegg or a local retailer.
Western digital makes decent drives, you can get a 320gig for around 80 dollars.
For that type of "rugged" pc , a SSD(solid state drive) would be ideal , but I havent seen any that use the old pata interface.
Also , did your PC come with one of these? 8ed5563.jpg

Good luck.
