The trick is to find the old style PATA laptop drives, or at least one
that is larger than what is currently in my system.
As for doing swapping of parts, my oldest laptop I currently have
requires you to remove the keyboard to access things like the memory
module. I bought two 1GB mods. and I had to give up replacing one since
it was under the keyboard and the instructions given my the manual to
access parts below the keyboard was totally wrong and does not work at
all. So I must keep the 256MB in that one and forget about getting two
mods. installed. The drive was in too tight to remove safely. At least
the Optical drive was only two screws, since I have had to replace it
twice during the warranty time.
I know one Win7 laptop my friend has that used two drives to give him
more space than other systems have. I would love to replace my oldest
laptop's drive larger than the current 80GB and my dual booting one
needs a larger one than the 160GB drive. Having Win7 and Ubuntu
12.10.MATE on one small drive, does not leave much room for larger data
files. I rather not buy an external mobile drive that was made to be
used with laptops. I rather not have to make sure that an external one
is hauled around in a bag with the laptop, packing and unpacking, etc..
It would be much safer to have the data internally to the system.

Not always true. My HP laptop, admittedly old, has a hard drive that
can be removed fairly easily with a screwdriver. The trick is to have
a spare drive and mounting frame to install.
That unplugging does not work when you deal with a laptop though.
