Dell Laptop Hard Drives, Notebook HDDs
Your hard drive is the place where everything on your computer lives. The programs, operating systems, saved data, pictures, movies, etc. are stored in magnetic layers on the hard drive. Introduced in 1956 by IBM, hard drives have come a long way. They are much smaller and yet have far greater capacity than they did when they were first released. Standard size is 60 GB, but hard drives will vary in other specifications that effect performance and speed of the computer. Though the title of this page starts with Dell laptop hard drives, we actually offer replacement HDDs for many brands of laptop computers. Most people recommend routinely backing up material stored on the hard drive on to CD, DVD, or external hard drive. If your hard drive fails, you can recreate it from your back up copies.
