Are all Gaming Laptops HDD spaces the same? Cos my current HDD is really pissing me off with the sluggishness, like i've checked on Task Manager my CPU/GPU/RAM Ussage is alway good, but good lord, even loading Google maxes out my HDD and slows my laptop down, Games are taking forever to load, and Age of Empires DE likes to freeze and crash due to APP not responding just when i load into a match.

Really need a new Cheap HDD that's better than my current one Which is this one

TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100

No, what you want with a laptop, something low in power consumption like an SSD not a HDD and they are faster. Now this one is pretty cheap, you probably could find cheaper/better one but it's still not a bad price. It's just something to show you.

Just get an SSD. You can get one super cheap now. Especially with Black Friday deals. The only reason to get an HDD these days is if you are going high capacity for media storage. They are shit for games and OS use.

Get a 1TB 2.5" SSD for around $90-100 these days... I recommend a MX500, its one of the best budget SSD's you can get.

HDD's are not worth money in 2019. Period.

Use an SSD.
