      Yes it should work just fine.. If you really want performance boost and overall system speed boost get a SSD drive... VERY Fast. Just get a big one if you want it to last for a long time..

        Answer

        It should be, most laptops take a 2.5" hard drive (which this one is) so by all accounts it should work just fine. IMO you should do yourself a favor and buy an SSD for the extra speed, but this drive does just fine if you're main concern is gaining storage space.

          Answer

          It should be! PlayStation 3 consoles accept most 2.5" internal Serial ATA hard drives for upgrade and HDD replacement purposes. Step-by-step installation instructions can be found in your owner's guide or on Sony's official PlayStation support site.

        I'm pretty new to replacing laptop components, so before purchasing I would like to confirm this hard drive will work with my laptop. I'm not sure if the measurements are the right size or whatnot. Thanks!

          Yes Dan, that drive will work well for you, and you should be able to find How-To instruction on YouTube to guide you in replacing the drive if you're uncomfortable digging around in your laptop.

            Yes, you shouldn't have any issues as this is a laptop drive. You might consider a SSD instead since it is going into a laptop. The SSD doesn't have any moving parts and offers quicker boot-ups. Although, it is a little more expensive but its worth it.

            Internal type disk drives usually need to be formatted and activated to be used. There is no operating system on them. External drives usually are ready to use in plug and play. Check the format type, as some are not formatted to NTFS.
