Just as the title says, Im looking for a laptop that has a preferably tool-less 2.5 hdd bay. Im playing around with the new os, remix os and at this time you have can only make live usb's of the os. Being able to quickly remove and replace the hdd to install updates and such would be very helpful. Any laptops like this? Cpu doesnt really matter just has to be intel x86 and have a 2.5 drive. I tried searching around but removable hdd isnt really a search filter. Thanks!

I have never ran across a laptop with a tool-less bay, they are all held in with screws in some manner, either in a caddy or directly to the system. One of the easiest if not easiest drive swap is probably the Lenovo T, X and W models that have a hard drive door and a caddy that slides in with no tools. You can get a few drive caddies and side rubber mounts for pretty cheap to keep different drives in like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/261435612420?ul_noapp=true&chn=ps&lpid=82

Once in a caddy you can slide that in and out of the laptop without screws, outside of the door screw.
