I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. It's an Intel processor model. Originally had 2GB DDR2 RAM - which I later upgraded to 3GB. It's hard-drive is Western Digital WD1600BEVS-60RST0. The drive height is 0.37 in / 9.4 mm.
Since I don't have any plans to shell out a 1000 bucks on new laptop, I want to upgrade the hard-drive of the laptop (in-fact, the only option left to increase its performance). I am planning for Seagate Momentus XT ST93205620AS or Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS, which are hybrid drives. As per this post on hp.com, the Intel version should support 7200 RPM drives. But what about hybrid drives? Will the machine support a hybrid-drive or should I stick to a 7200 RPM drive?
In short, I am looking for a fastest possible drive that can be installed in my laptop, preferably with 32MB buffer - except for SSD.
Thanks in advance.
