Hard Drive in KOP Laptop

Does any one know exactly what the model number of the hard drive in the FIRST choice laptop? The laptop is a Acer Aspire E11 Netbook and can be found here http://firstchoicebyandymark.com/fc17-158. We know the hard drive is 250 GB and 5400 RPM, but we really need the model number or a direct link to a supplier for totally non-suspicious 900 related reasons.

Re: Hard Drive in KOP Laptop

Go to device manager -> Disk Drives and look for the ID number there. Or you can just open the laptop and check that way. And coming from the team whose robot was almost this I'm excited to see whats going to be made of this.

We don't currently have one, we were hoping someone here would and could tell us.

WD2500LPVX-22V0TT0 - 250GB


but I'm really suspicious about how this information will be exploited...

Re: Hard Drive in KOP Laptop

Isn't this actually the part? https://www.amazon.com/WESTERN-DIGITAL-WD2500LPVX-Western-Digital/dp/B00WZC96W4/ref=pd_sbs_147_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00WZC96W4 &pd_rd_r=6EPFXQRJCYEX7XM867KF&pd_rd_w=SBACh&pd_rd_ wg=O7aJ6&psc=1&refRID=6EPFXQRJCYEX7XM867KF The one you linked seems to have 500 GB (though the picture shows 250 GB?!?!?!). I think the picture is inaccurate.

Re: Hard Drive in KOP Laptop

It's 250GB, so the picture is right but the 500GB is wrong.
I updated the link to a different Google hit.

Re: Hard Drive in KOP Laptop

I would suggest accessing the BIOS, at boot up and see what is reported. Ask a programming mentor for help, if needed.

...I think I see the advantage this specific hard drive gives you, but I'm confused as to why you need it on a robot...

You think we're going to stoop to using lossy compression for the on-board music server?

It is possible that they were going to use the computer (booted from an SSD) as a coprocessor, but the GDC's unpredictable, and often bad decisions on COTS computing devices make it safer to have the original HDD installed. I think they want to install it, but not necessarily use it. Instead, I think they might boot from a USB-connected solid-state storage device.

How far off am I?

Nothing that exciting unfortunately. We're just looking at our options for recording match data in real time.

Well if you're in a match with us then check out port 900 and you can listen to a selection of Motorhead, AC-DC (Yes Kevin, I forgot the lightning bolt), Joe Strummer, and some a cappella music from one of our other mentors.

But what about those pesky VLANs?
