Are the W500's harddrive bay and ultrabay SATA II compatible?


The W500, R400, R500, T400, T500, X200 are all SATA II compatible, so they will operate at the SATA II speed when the appropriate harddrive is installed in either the harddrive bay or in the ultrabay (the bay where Optical Drive resides).
