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?

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.



In daily use: R60F, R500F, T61, T410

Collecting dust: T60

Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,

Non-ThinkPads: Panasonic CF-31 & CF-52, HP 8760W
