Laptop hard drives are very different from PC hard drives. The biggest difference of course is size. When you look at a laptop hard drive you will notice that it is significantly different from a standard PC hard drive. Most of these drives only measure 2.5 inches. The next big difference that you'll find if you look deeper, is compatibility. You're going to find that you cannot normally take a hard drive from one laptop and put it into another unless they are both the same make and model. The reason for this is that they will all have varied IDE connectors. This means that if you want to recover data from your laptop hard drive, you may have to purchase an adaptor for your PC so that you can hook the laptop hard drive directly into the motherboard. Retailers of laptop parts have a wide variety of available laptop hard drives, so you should be careful to get the correct hard drive for your laptop. If you are unsure how to replace your laptop's hard drive, you can find assistance from many laptop repair service centers.

IDE Drives: This is the oldest and most proven type of hard drive interface that has been around since the earliest days of computing history. It uses a standard 44 pin connection to the machine.

SATA Drives: SATA came out much later and boasted a faster transfer rate than IDE drives. They are becoming increasingly common in most PC's and Laptops.

Solid State Hard Drives: These are built on the same technology that is utilized in flash thumb drives. They literally utilize flash technology to boot nearly instantaneously, excluding the POST time. Because there are no moving parts in flash memory, the drives are capable of higher speeds and greater reliability.

Time keeps moving, and so does the development of new PC hardware. Before long it is likely that the POST time will be eliminated and laptops will turn on instantly, like calculators and palm pilots. Solid state flash drives give a glimpse at what is to come, but faster technologies are already in the works.
