Thanks for reply. The link given points to a 3Gb/s HDD, does that makes any issue (interface etc) with laptop having 1.5Gb/s installed. Other thing I would like to ask, can I use bootable CD of Acronis Home to write back the old hard drive image to new one inside the laptop. Or do I need to buy an external enclosure to copy the image prior to insert my new HDD.
I tend to go for Hitachis for notebook drives.
I don't think you can go wrong (from a reliability standpoint) with any manufacturer's latest 2.5" drives.

I used acronis true image home to create image on external enclosure. Yesterday I did partitioning and reduced the size of this segment to 3GB from 21 GB (partition has only 2.5GB data). Other question, what is the maximum number of partitions I can have. What software do I need to create multi boot system (say up to 3).
I guess my question would be...how did you accomplish this "image"?
That should be the answer to any partitions that currently exist.
