Hi All,

Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this, a friend has been gifted a secondary laptop through a scheme with the hard drive being pulled. I've tried to look for a replacement drive but I've not found anything that is clear anyone have any advise?

Thanks.

I guess it would be a 2.5" drive (again a guess) so instead of replacing it with a harddrive you could also replace it with a 2.5" ssd. I did the same with my older laptop.

The ASUS PU551LA series is listed making use of SATA interface.
A standard 2.5" solid state drive or 2.5" HDD should work.

Thanks both ..

Any particular recommendations it will be for a 6yr home schooled. I'm looking at putting Linux onto the drive not sure if that makes a difference.

I’d install an SSD, an inexpensive 500 GB unit will hold plenty, be faster, and less sensitive to jerks and shocks. Any brand from a reputable retailer would work.

No difference.
