    They are all currently using 2.5" mini IDE connectors, including the 1.8" drives which fit in a compatible carrier.

    When they design laptops they don't know what drives will be available, just like desktop or tower systems, so they have to be able to take any drive. I don't know of any reason why they should not be completely interchangeable.

    AFAIK, Sony don't make HDDs.

    If they did they would redefine the word "proprietary".

    I've heard that some newer laptops are using SATA nowadays, though...
