Geek.com demonstrates an ultra-simple process to swap out your notebook drive for a bigger or faster one:
- Clone the old notebook drive with DiscWizard
- Remove the old drive from the notebook
- Install the new drive
Geek.com says it took them 30 minutes.
If you do upgrade, don’t just think bigger – think faster too. Your laptop probably has a 5400 rpm drive today. Now much faster 7200 rpm drives – the same speed as most desktop PC drives – are readily available in the same capacities as 5400 rpm drives.
