You'll be fine.
Ive search about this and its all been mixed opinions. There was some ppl with 3.5"...............HD's posting some horror stories and ppl saying get 2.5" laptop ones. Well ive got a 2.5"er.... lucky me ha and wonna stick it in the boot but i am scared about vibrations. (yes we're still talking pcs here)
My changer has always been OK but a carputer, there doesnt seem to be a conclusive answer. How many of you have got them in the boot near/next to a sub
I got a Kicker 10" sub facing my laptop about 3 feet away and have had no problems...
CarPuter: Dell P3-500 Laptop; D-Link WiFi; Deluo GPS; D-Link Radio; iMac DVD w/ ide2usb
Audio: Audigy 2 NX; Kicker KX700.5 amp; 20w center amp; Kicker L7 10" Sub
Display: Lilliput 7" TouchScreen
my 12" JL is 1 foot away from my HDD, they are attatched to the same box, i think i'm asking for trouble

As far as magnetism goes, you will be ok unless you physically put the hard drive ON the magnet.
As for vibrations, I wouldn't mount it real close.
My next generation Front End is right on schedule.
It will be done sometime in the next generation.
I'm a lesbian too.
I am for hire!
Let me just tell you my story. I had a 30gig 2.5" drive in my ride, and it would skip constantly. Engine vibrations, too deep/loud of a bass note (my drive was even in the dash), bumps in the road. These little drives seem too sensitive. It finally crashed so I got a 20 gig 2.5" and it did the same thing. So rather than crashing that one too, I just opted for the 40gig 3.5" drive. I haven't had any problems with it yet, and I've had it installed for about 2 weeks.Originally Posted by live2themaxuk
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
i was also in an accident in a caravan, i was rearended by a ram truck. it was doing 55 mph i was standing still i was then pushed into the rear of a new gmc.thay hit me so hard that a pop can in a cooler came out and broke my windshield! after gathering my thoughts and geting info/cops ect. the towtruck driver ask if i needed anything from my van. i didnt think about turning off the key when i got out. so i gthering my stuff ( i was on a trip from key west) lots of stuff, i noticed my screen was just sitting on the floor of my van waiting for my to type in my password.i was and still am using a 3 1/2 harddrive. also a new van that one was totled in that accident
