Can Laptop/Desktops recognize any size hard drive?

This is probably the dumbest question on this site. I am extremely tech savvy however, when read all manuals to any computer i posses or come in contact with i always see different size hard drives a PC can have. it always tops at a given size(500gb, 750gb, etc...)

Can a laptop, say my laptop (HP Elitebook 8440p) running Windows 7 Professional read any size hard drive? Say i buy a 500gb or 1Tb. Will my hard drive recognize that drive space?

    Your OS & Motherboard will recognize the hard drive space, so long as the hard drive you purchase is compatible with your current laptop hardware (motherboard/form factor, etc)
