Hi here is the information
by kishan_kumar1 / June 20, 2012 5:25 AM PDT

My name is Kishan and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.
500 GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA Hard Drive for Select Dell Systems $259.99 plus tax
You can also log in to our support web site to get the compatible part /upgrade.
At the left side choose the option parts and upgrades
Put the service tag(can be found at the back of the tower alpha numeric code on a bar coded sticker on desktop or underneath on the laptop)
Click on search
choose system drives
you would get the whole list of compatible hard drive for your system and other part /upgrade can also be found here.

Hope this will help

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
