interchangability of hd

    I want to get a bigger capacity hard drive for our ibm 600x thinkpad laptop
    and
    was thinking of getting one thru ebay. Will pretty much any 2.5" drive fit
    into it?

    Thanks

    Yes, any that is less than 19mm thick, which and all modern ones are. But
    whether that is a useful use of money is questionable.

    What OS, how much memory and which speed CPU are in yours?

    Of course, you would need a PATA(older) drive and not the SATA(newer)
    drive.

    I don't know of any physical or OS limit to just those.

    I understood the OP's wish is to replace his present hard drive and not to
    add a second drive.

    You would get 100% if quantity was a useful touchstone.

    I guess I'll take a lower percentage...and hope it helps the OP, then.

    Try apricorn.com, I have gotten several drives from them, they have
    the specs and can provide drives for most laptops.
