okay, i cant believe im asking this, but...laptop hard drives, do all laptops withith the last....oh i dont know...4 years sport the same size hard disks, meaning physical size, like 2.5" , and are there different...well laptop hard disk form factors? I have a compaq N1050V that needs a new drive, and getting a new one from compaq is going to cost way too much, its only a 30 gig drive...so i want to just shop around...ebay maybe...but i want to make sure the new drive is going to fit in the bay...

Not all 2.5" HDDs are the same.

There are two main form factors: 9mm and 12.5mm (or 9.5mm and 12mm, I can't friggin remember which gets the half). Most drives today are 9mm and 9mm drives can fit into any laptop, including the 12.5mm bays.

Dell was big on the 12.5mm drives a few years ago but I think they may have switched over.
