    Post Notebook Hard Drives

    Ok, I know this might sound like a strange and stupid question.

    I have never owned or seen the inner workings of a laptop computer before (can you believe it??). Do laptop harddrives connect the same way as desktop harddrives?

    As in 40 Pin IDE connectors?
