Gorilla glue it to the back of the screen, snake a SATA cable out from one of the fan grills..

????

Profit!

On a serious note, be careful with smaller seagate drives as they could be SMR. Large cache sizes is often an indicator too

Is it not as bad as paying $10 less for a 1 TB drive? Yes. Is it a good idea? No.

You can get an 8 TB drive for around $160 if you're patient and willing to shuck. There may have been even lower prices this year, but I don't remember exact details.

A really big laptop for big people. Bigger people have bigger laps, so it makes sense.

Will not work, laptop's SATA connector can't provide 12V to such desktop HDDs.

Hmmm....I guess it was time for Newegg to get into the bot business for free (frigid) hyping. Not their best try IMHO.

$60/TB is perhaps the worst HDD deal I have ever seen on RFD. Most people shoot for $20/TB (slightly worse for lower capacities) and I don't think anyone buys 1TB drives anymore with 10TB ultra-premium helium PMR drives going for $200 on the regular and 6-8TB even cheaper.

I don't downvote but better value (not price) alternatives... BB had a 8TB HDD WD promo'd last week for $149... Costco had a 1TB External (USB 3.0 / USB-C) SSD Seagate for $139
