Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is this HDD from WD  ( matching my laptop (HP Pavilion 16-a0042nq)? I want to buy it, but I'm not sure if it's good for me.


Thank you!

No, it is for desktop, you can use similar WD 1TB Blue drive for laptops which is only 2.5". WD Blue series is very old. Why not use the new HDD or SSD ? For example
