Hp laptop HDs - are they standard fit?

Is the Hewlett Packard laptop 2.5" HD a standard item? Or does HP use non-standard components?

As far as I know a Laptop drive is 2.5" so it should fit. But I have seen where a Laptop will not just run with any make of drive, even when it fits OK

Many thanks. Isn't standardisation wonderful? :-)

I was hoping to replace the HD in my IBM lappy,fortunately I was able to temp borrow a laptop HD and found it had totally different pin arrangement.I have shelved plans on upgrading the IBM and instead plan on buying a more modern lappy than the IBM brick/dinosaur.

Woodchip and yourself have convinced me that it may be a bit rash to buy a laptop HD via eBay without first getting all possible info regarding form, fit and interface.

That's why I posted the question, so I'll tick the box.
Thanks again
