Any standard ATA/100 2.5" drive will work....I am not sure if they have passed 100 gb on them yet but i haven't looked

Here is a 6 page thread about it. I changed mine. It took a couple of hours just because i'm super anal and wanted to make sure everything went back together perfect. I probably wouldn't do it again, but i'm glad I did it. I put in the Hitachi 60gb 7200 rpm from newegg.

Yes, you can upgrade the HD yourself, albeit an arduous task. One thing to keep in mind is that by doing so, you void any and all warranty on the machine. :black:
