    They all take standard-size 2.5" drives (i.e., not laptop drives). The exact brands vary over time but they are typically Western Digital Caviar drives at the moment. Capacity will be entirely dependant on the machine. The 755s we bought last year came with 160GB drives as standard - if you have the serial tags of the machine you can check what they shipped with on the Dell support site.

    Thanks for answers above.

    Next question is which of the above have SATA 1 and which have SATA 2?

    The 80gb drives in our most recent batch of Optiplex 760s are Western Digital, in reality I suspect DELL uses whatever they can get hold of at the time.... we have had WD, Seagate, Maxtor & Samsung in our DELL desktop systems over the years....

    Cheers for you help, all sorted now. Just for a note all machines support SATA 2 including the GX520 Dell told me.
