HELP! I need to replace the hard drive on my HP Pavillion zv5000, and I am not very technically inclined. When I go to the HP website, the replacement drive is priced at over $275. I think that's a bit steep.

Here is how the replacement drive is described: ATA/100 EIDE, 60GB, 4200 RPM, 2.5 inch form factor, 1.0 inch height.

Now my questions: Can I get any notebook hard drive that has the 2.5 inch form factor? How about the other described features? I'd like to have a drive with more storage and one that's faster as well. I'd really like to keep that price under about $150. Can you give me some recommended products that would be compatible with this machine?

A thousand thanks!

Thanks! How about a little "Hard Drive 101"? I see the ATA on the product but what about the 100 and the EIDE? And what does it all mean?

(Hey! Have to start learning sometime!)

Talking from France.... ;) Is there an hardware difference (and does an adaptor exists ?) or should I really take care of a compatibility list to choose my HDD and operate the replacement. where can I find this special list, if exists ? Thanks in advance :)
