    Im just wondering what can I upgrade the HDD to for my A100? The hard drive in now is a 120GB and its useless at this point because of an issue I had with it.
    I was thinking of going with this one but I don't know about Toshiba's Hardware Upgrades policy.

    That HDD will work in the A100. The only problem is that its 7200RPM, which can get very hot. 5400RPM might be a better solution.

    Hi

    I agree with Akuma. You should take the HDD with 5400rpm. It should be fast enough and produces less heat. For office and the most multimedia applications itís good.

    I hope you have fun with your new HDD. ;)
