[ubuntu] Replacing Hard Drive in Lenovo x60 Tablet

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey everyone. I'm currently considering upgrading the hard drive in my x60 tablet pc which I use as a dual boot machine (Ubuntu 11.10 + XP Tablet 2005) and I'm wondering what the consensus might be on the best Linux-friendly brand of drive to go with. I currently have an 80GB Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 and my criteria for a new drive are as follows - 5400 RPMs, lower power consumption (current drive datasheet puts read/write usage at 2W) and a median capacity of 500GB. I have already been recommended something from the WD Blue family of drives and I've looked here and there on google for opinion (Hardware)
