Hard Drive

For the Inspiron 3721, does anyone know if a 4 TB hard drive (when a 7mm becomes available) will run in this machine. It is 64 bit but since it does not have "uefi" , only old BIOS, I'm not sure.

Thank You

Re: Hard Drive

I don't think you'll ever see a 4T spinning hard drive for notebooks.  None of the major manufacturers will invest what it would cost to develop one -- there's no return on investment.  Very few will buy in light of the fact that 4T 2.5" SSDs are headed for the under-$500 mark, and a hard drive would have to sell for 1/3 to 1/2 of that to find buyers.

If you want a 4T internal storage solution, it's SSD or nothing - and likely will permanently remain that way.
