CompTIA A+ Practice Test Question 8/10 for A+ Exam-220-901
You are replacing a failing 500GB Laptop hard drive. The laptop is currently running Windows 8. What hard drive type would you be looking for as a comparable replacement both technically and in terms of budget?
A) 5400 RPM 2.5″
B) 5400 RPM 3.5″
The answer is at the bottom of this web page as this will give you a chance to think it through first.
EXPLANATION: While there are faster alternatives it is most likely that this machine is running a standard 5400 RPM 2.5″ drive. The 3.5″drive would be too large physically. SSD and Hybrid drives are not cost effective when compared to conventional hard disks and therefore don’t satisfy the budgetary requirement in terms or remaining “comparable” to the cost of the existing 5400 RPM 2.5″ hard drive.
A+ Exam Objective: Main Domain 3.0 Mobile Devices – Sub-objective 3.1 “Install and configure laptop hardware and components.”
The correct answer is: A) 5400 RPM 2.5″
