The hard disks do not care if they are used on AMD or Intel or MIPS CPUs.
Let's break down the quick items to check.
1. Size. In laptops you find 2 disk sizes.
2. Height. For now you find about 3 numbers all over.
9mm for 1.8 inch drives
9.5mm or 12.5mm in the 2.5 inch drives.
3. Interface. You should encounter IDE (I will not list all the other names its called by) and SATA.
Yes there is that rare laptop with SCSI but it's rare.
i've got a hard drive that was supposed to go in a dell XPS M1530 (i believe) and want to put it in my hp pavillion dv6000. the hard drive is empty and the issue i'm having is that my hp has an AMD processor while the dell, as far as i know, was using an intel. is this going to work, or will i be better off selling the hard drive and getting one that will work with AMD?
