I want to change the disk in my year 2003 IBM Thinkpad R32 notebook. Currently, there's a 40Gb hitachi ATA-5 in it.
As I know, some controllers can handle just as much as 128Gb (but I want to buy 160Gb) - how do I find out if will 160Gb will fit?

Easiest way... E-mail IBM and ask.

Sadly I have never seen spec listings showing what the max drive capacity is... so not much use looking there.

Might luck out and someone here knows what it can handle.
