Thread: uata notebook hard drives

    uata notebook hard drives

    Hello everyone, I'm a newbie here.
    I have a concern for my laptop hard drive.
    its uata, 5400rpm gateway laptop and I was wondering which would be a better upgrade option? SATA or PATA? I know this is a silly question, but I was wondering because I'm not pretty sure of which type of drive to use?

    any suggestions?
