Thank you both for your answers!
And navio, WOW
, that was an answer. I have been trying for sooo long to get an answer to that question. All you get out of Dell is that the max capacity is 32GB, and I went back and forth with them for weeks, sending mails and chats. That is the maximum capacity they tested with the machine, and there is no way they will ever tell you it is capable of more. So that is so useful to get such a complete answer. I guess I will try to get as large a drive as my pocketbook can afford. I'll go for 80GB, but it could be a bit steep, especially in Argentina. Even 30GB would be a huge jump from the 6GB I have now, but I'd like a bit more.
One more small question. As far as the speed, the older drives were 4,200rpm. Now you see more 5,400. There are also 7,200, but I doubt I can get my hands on one. If I could, would my machine be able to handle that speed?
Even if you don't get around to answering that, thank you both sooooo much
for your answers!!!!
