    Looks like my HP/Compaq nc6400 has a SATA HDD.

    Well knock me over with a feather, looks like my nc6400 has a SATA HDD after all. Thought it'd be a PATA since it's an older machine but looking at Disk Utilities I saw a SATA Controller and it was pointed at the hard drive then I check out specs online and yep, it's a SATA drive. Looks like I might just yank the 120GB SATA our of the CQ57 and replace it with my 60GB HDD since I'm selling the CQ57 anyway. Now I wonder if the two nc6220's I just picked up off of EvilBay are SATA?
