do a search for 700m technical service manual and you will see how to swap the HD.
second, the dell salesperson was wrong about HD's in the 700m...which are 5400rpm...if anyone here has gotten a 700m with a 4200rpm, i'll be a monkey's fat arse uncle--that is in the 40-60GB drives.
also, don't be spending no stinking extra money for 802.11a capability...how useless...unless your work has it, but then again, why would your work have it? put the money toward something useful, more ram or increase your processor speed, or save for a larger 7200rpm drive.
initial price of 7200rpm 100GB will be high, but the 60GB 7200rpm wasn't that high, so i don't think that the 100GB will be that expensive, especially if more than one company comes out with them. i just can't figure out why no one else is making 60GB 7200rpm...probably think it's a waste of time since performance difference ain't that big between that and a 60GB 5400rpm drive...yeah, maybe you gamers out there, but if you are buying the 700m for gaming you need your head examined anyways.
i'm just bored
