I have a Fujitsu MHW2120BH hard drive according to my hardware device
manager in my Vaio VGN-N320E laptop. I am curious what hard drive
manufacturer the rest of you have who also own the same VGN-N320E
model? I know it doesn't matter what manufacturer the hard drive is
but I was having a discussion with someone else on whether Sony used
different hard drive manufacturers for this model. The person I was
disagreeing with about this also has the same Fujitsu drive in the
same Vaio laptop, both bought about 6 months ago.

I don't know about that particular model, but it is very common for
manufactures to use different manufactures for hard drives, screens, etc
for the same model number.

Supporting what BillW50 said, there is no guarantee that any
manufacturer will supply the same drive over the lifetime of a Sony
notebook with exactly the same notebook model number. The original
manufacturing run might use a single drive model, the next run might use
another. Normally, for a given model number, one can only be assured
that the type, capacity, speed, etc., will remain the same. The
manufacturer can change between manufacturing runs.  Note that even Sony
offers HD options in size and speed, albeit rarely, that can muddy the
picture further.
