    Hi All,

    I'm trying to find out if my thinkpad t61 laptop has a max capacity in terms of harddrive.

    The lenovo site said it max is 160gb but im wondering if it just what they offer because I want to go up to 200-250gb in terms of harddrive space for my T61.

    Also it said Serial ATA meaning SATA drives so im wondering if that means I Can use any SATA drives such as the Seagate Momentus 7200.2 200GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive from newegg.

    Thanks.

    If it supports a 160GB drive then it does 48 bit addressing in which case it should support any current capacity drive on the market thats SATA. And yes you can buy from a site such as Newegg instead of from Lenovo.
