Default Switching From S.S.D To Hard Disk - 09-04-2011, 02:55 PM

My Dell Mini 10 originally had 'Ubuntu' installed when purchased. I have since installed Windows XP. I would like to replace the SSD with a standard hard drive. Can anyone tell me which drive is suitable for installion into the Mini 10. I need at least 100Gb. Thanks.

any standard Laptop 2.5in SATA hard drive should work in either Mini the 1010 or 1011, I personally have a 750gb WD Scorpio Blue drive and it works well, the only decision you may have is whether to get a standard 5400rpm drive or the faster 7200rpm drive

Dell Mini 10 (Obsidian Black 1010), 2gb RAM, 1.66ghz 533mhz FSB (Z530) processor, A10 BIOS, 1 Terabyte (1000 GB) WD Scorpio Blue Hard Drive (5400rpm), Intel GMA 500 Integrated Graphics, TV Tuner, Bluetooth 2.1 module with EDR, 1.3mp Camera, 1366x768 HD Screen, Wireless 1510 b/g/n mini card, 6 cell (56WHr) Battery, 4gb SDHC, 64gb Flashdrive, Targus Netbook Chillpad, Targus Sport Case, Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (500gb)/Windows 8.1 (500gb) (Dual Boot)
