You can report back to us on what you find Teo
The standard 4200rpm drive will be slow
Here is a mini review
http://forum.notebookreview.com/noteboo ... specs.html

One post said they thought you needed to clip the pins, but that was a long time ago and those posters were not up to the standards that we set today

Ok! I installed a 40gb hdd on it without clipping any pin. The result is no go, not recognized on the bios. I bended pin 41 and 44 still no go. Anybody?

I still remember on NBR a year ago that there are pin to clip. I forgot which pin while I am the one who done it on CF-W2 by an adviced from Tough 2 go and I can't find it no more.
