Replacement hard drive for T23

I've got a 2647-HU8 and need a comatible replacement drive. It had a 4200 rpm, 40 gb drive. ATA-6.

I parts list gives the number 08K9767 or a Travelstar 4K40.

The Travelstar 4K40 is no longer available. Do I go with a 5K40?


Thanks in advance.

ThinkPad T23, 2647 HU8, Based on 2647-8RU: PIII-M 1.20GHz (512KB), 512MB RAM, 40.0GB HDD, 14.1 XGA(1024x768) TFT LCD, 8x8x24x/8x CDRW/DVD, Modem(MPCI), Ethernet(CDC), WinXP Home, Linksys Wireless B adapter.

Re: Replacement hard drive for T23

You can install any flavour of 2.5" P-ATA drive you wish to, 4200, 5400 or 7200 RPM, height restriction 12.5mm. As far as capacity is concerned, I'm not sure on this point, so I would recommend staying under 120GB to play on the safe side. Other members who know better will hopefully post to say you can go for larger capacity if you wish to.
