Now that my ol’ notebook (a Medion MD 41100, Dec. 2003) nearly has reached the biblic age of 4 years I looked around and spent some new parts. OK, that won’t change the mediocre resolution of 1024×768 nor the layout itself like a new notebook.
So first, some new RAM:
before: 512 MB, now 2 GB (two 1GB-Kingston-modules)
Next, a new HD:
before: 40 GB Seagate Momentus 5400, now a WD Scorpio 160 GB 5400
And finally, an extern case for the old HD, this time a Trust
One think I have to go now with is the different HD-busy-sound. The Seagate has a hard knocking while the WD swooshes like waves.
