compaq armada e500 hard drive upgrade

I plan to upgrade the 12GB hard drive to a bigger one. I checked the
Hitachi global storage website and found two TravelStar hard drives are
listed compatable with E500. One is 5k-80 and the other 7k-60. Both are
60 GB, 2.5" form factor and 9.5 mm high. I also checked the HP parts
store and found that the replace part for my 12 GB hard drive is
167527-001, 2.75" form factor and 12.5 mm high.

My question is that will the Hitachi travelstar hard drives fit for my
Armada E500 though they have different form factors and heights?

Thanks a lot for your help!

There are no 2.75" drives; the HP web site is a mistake.  You should
have no problems using the thinner drives.
