Samsung 160GB 5400RPM 2.5" PATA Hard Drive

Fit in a laptop?

Only a really old laptop. Parallel ATA has been replaced by Serial ATA for quite some time now. I’d never buy a refurb. hard drive. Especially after having my fair share of DOA drives that were brand new.

So I bought a 2008 Thinkpad for my son as he needs more time on the internet and Microsoft for school and I couldn’t pass up the deal. The hard drive was corrupted though. Just looking for a cheap CPU and with this drive I will have spent 65 bucks.
I wonder if I can find one somewhere else for the same price non refurb…
