RE: hard drive

Generally, computer assemblers use whatever is the cheapest component option on the day they purchase the parts.

A cut-price brand like either E-System or Ei-Systems will simply use the cheapest parts they can lay their hands on.
In summary, the machine could have any brand of drive in their. And to be truthful, it doesn't matter. Hard drives are to all intents and purposes interchangeable, and on an old 160GB drive they would all have a similar - slow - performance

RE: hard drive

Hey There,

I am totally agree with the answer given by fellow user, basically the brand of hard drive does not create any issues and you can use any specific drive that you want to fix in your machine.
