Ok, I'm planning on doing things this way: Buy the new hard drive. Buy Norton Ghost. I have an xb2000 Notebook Expansion Base with the installed hard drive. What I'm planning on doing is "ghosting" my current hard drive onto the expansion base's HD, remove the old laptop HD, install the new laptop HD, and then "ghost" my information back from my base's HD onto the new HD. Does this sound like any problems will be coming up, or should I just hand my laptop over to the Best Buy geeks and have them do it? No real issues with that (nothing on my laptop I'm really worried about), except I don't want to be laptop-less for the 4-5 days they say it's going to take them to get to my computer.
