I didn't realize that it's downright impossible to get 7200 rpm PATA or IDE laptop hard drives
7200 laptop pata, great deals on Computers Networking on eBay!:
Newegg.com - laptop drive:
An interesting factoid I didn't realize that it's downright impossible to get 7200 rpm PATA or IDE laptop hard drives. One can find SATA drives but not IDE in the 7200 rpm speed. One can find them fortunately on ebay. Ensuring that a laptop is on the fastest speed you can buy/afford/upgrade to is the difference between night and day on a laptop. Some have upgraded laptops to solid state drives.
But it's funny how it's harder to find some versions of the drives these days.
It's also impossible for me in California to buy/order silver dragees as well, but that's another story several years old -- http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2003/12/23/MNGS03SUEM1.DTL
