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!
