Re: WTB: Ultrabay caddy for ssd/HDD TP61/61P 15.4 inch

Check out newmodeus.com for the T/W500, and W700. The T and W500 will use the same slim caddy as the T420s. https://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_7&products_id=480&zenid=d65f8a1df17814e48ae938a9451fb9a5 The W700 will need the thicker Caddy that the W520 uses. https:...
