for my 1150 but when i looked on the dell site i almost had a cardiac
arrest! those things are insanely expensive, so, i was wondering if
other brands of hard drives can be used and what i need to look for to
make sure it works in this notebook (I assume its not as easy as
swapping drives in a desktop [I'm somewhat of a notebook newbie]). Any
help/advise would be greatly appreciated!
Re: Non-Dell hard drives (ie cheaper?) for inspiron 1150?
Any 2.5" drive should be just fine. It's really not all that much
different than a desktop. If you buy direct from Dell, they'll send it
to you already mounted and ready to put into the laptop.
If you buy it elsewhere, you'll save quite a bit of money, but you'll
need to mount the drive yourself. If you're handy with a screwdriver it
shouldn't take more than 5 minute.
