Re: Hitachi 7k100 IBM firmware files/instructions needed

It does list my model on that page, it seems :) .

If I decide to use the FW update method instead of the BIOS update method, would the steps I listed above be the correct way to proceed?

Identifying old IBM ThinkPad messenger bag/case

Hi all, newbie here

I recently bought an 'IBM ThinkPad' branded messenger bag/case, and I was wondering if anyone had any info about it for me.

The bag is still on the way to me, but I do have some pictures of it:
