    Does anyone know if this is compatible with the Thinkpad R40 (2681)

    Mgf. part # 08K0639, Hitachi Travelstar 5K80 80GB HDD 5400RPM

    The IBM site states part #08K9863 but does it matter since the drives
    are both made now by Hitachi for the Travelstar series.

    I would think that the first would be compatible.

    Thank you!

    I think it would be fine - it's not important if a HDD has an IBM part
    no. (unless you're buying from IBM), just that it be the right form
    factor. I replaced the original Fujitsu 40GB HDD in my R40 (2897-54U)
    with a Toshiba 60GB HDD - went right in without a peep.
