Re: X201t - Upgarding hard drive - advice, please (inc. on hybrids)

Well, I need at least 250gb, but I'd like more depending on the cost. I haven't even looked into them enough to know what's available.

Re: X201t - Upgarding hard drive - advice, please (inc. on hybrids)

I've been looking at a hard drive upgrade for an X200 and I'm seeing SATA II and SATA III models.
What's the difference, and are there any issues with compatibility?

I'm looking at a Hitachi 7K1000, but there still seems to be various choices. How do you select from there?

Thanks,

Secondarily, can I take a hard drive out of a working X220 and swap it into an X200, or will there be issues?

I have a new-to-me X60 with a freshly loaded XP-Pro OS. I'm having an issue with it going into standby. It's set up to go into standby whenever the lid is closed, but rarely does it actually complete the action. It also will not go into standby when prompted, via Fn + F4. Sometimes it will, but most...

LF: working X3 Ultrabase, condition not important...

I need a working X3 ultrabase. It doesn't need to be in great shape, so long as it works.
I don't need a drive for it, but the drive slot must be working.

If you happen to have them and could combine shipping, I could also use one or two
OEM 16v/4.5a AC adapters, in good condition.
