A Hard Drive Space Upgrade Limit?
\015 Is there a limit to the amount of hard drive space I can add when I replace my laptop's hard drive? Originally, my Acer Aspire 5050 came with a 100GB hard drive, but sadly, it is physically damaged. I know that the maximum allowable RAM upgrade on this old laptop is 4GB, but I was wondering if there is such a thing as a "too big" hard drive. I am concerned that I will buy a hard drive that I will not be able to use.\015
No, there's no harddrive size limitation.
