    My trusty IBM Thinkpad 600e has had a hard life, but has served me well. A few months after the warranty expired, the hard drive has failed, it does not boot and it fails the IBM Drive Fitness Test.

    :idea: I figure that I can replace and even upgrade the hard drive inexpensively and get a few more years of life from this machine. It has always worked just fine with Win 98 and Office 97 and does not really need the latest OS. In fact, I just found a thorough review of the Thinkpad 600 on epinions.com (dated August 2003) which confirmed this very idea.

    Any recommendations and pointers to specific drives, vendors, and prices would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Look for 2.5in drives from:
    Travelstar IBM/Hitachi

    in that order.
    I could give you places and prices for the UK?
