Default Laptop question: Can I swap my hard drive into a better laptop??

I'm sick of how old and slow my work laptop is...

If I wanted to by a cheap laptop on Ebay or some placewithout a hard drive or RAM, wouldit be just as easy as swapping my hard drive and RAM into a new "shell" and laptop motherboard.

I really don't know a better way to explain it. Thanks.

Eric

hrm... not really. It might work but it will have to redetect every single bit of hardware over again.

It'd be easier to buy another laptop and just take your old laptop hdd and put it in a usb or firewire enclosure and have it as extra portable storage.

Thanks.

I guess I'll just wait until November when my 3 year cycle time is up so I can get a new one.

Ahh, lifecycle... futureproof next time.

Or, become an exec. They go through new hardware every year. Then it's that fun hand-me-down chain.
