    Hi,

    I have an old Toshiba laptop. It's got a pentium 4. The hard drive
    broke and I want to replace with a working HD. My question is what
    kind of hard drive do I get? Are all laptop hard drives (backward)
    compatible and will work? Or will only a special kind of hard drive
    work and/or fit correctly? Thanks.

    See what you need (Ed's suggestion) and check the price at NewEgg.com.
