IBM Thinkpad R40 2896-72U

Currently have a 30gig hard drive and would like to replace with a higher capacity drive of 160gig. What is the HDD capacity for this laptop?

Re: IBM Thinkpad R40 2896-72U

Welcome to the forum!

There's no BIOS restrictions on R40 machines, so you'll be fine with a 160GB hard drive, just make sure it's PATA and not SATA, 9.5mm/2.5".

Good luck.

Cheers,

George
