Hi I know that this has been posted before, but still as the prices and tech changes, I am posting it again. I am planning to buy a new HDD. Around 100GBs or 80Gbs. My budget is around 5k. I have a laptop, HP nx6110. The question that I have is, should I go for a USB drive or 2.5" drive for the notebook. The next question is, if I get the notebook HDD, can I connect my old HDD with this one, simultanioulsy when required? Is there any usb-ide convertor avalable for 2.5" HDDs? I want the new HDD as a primary disk. The one that I have right now... I will use it as backup drive, so I want to be able to connect both of them at one time. And now the third que, which brand should I go for and what might be the costs of the HDDs? Thanks in advance.... please don't report the thread as I have explained the reason. Aditya __________ Does no one know?
