new laptop hard drive


Recommended Posts

i recently bought a new laptop (hp dv7 1245dx). it has a 320 gb hard drive installed. i'd like to buy 2 things: an express card ssd and a larger regular hard drive. on these, i'd like to mirror the windows partition on the regular one, and the recovery drive from hp onto the ssd. is this feasible/a good idea?

You won't need to save the recovery drive on the SSD. A far better option would be to use the included HP software to burn a recovery DVD that has the same stuff on it.

But a larger hard drive is a good idea. Theoretically, the more bits that are packed onto a drive, the closer they are and the faster the seek and read times should be. Plus you'll have more space. :)
