Windows 7: maximum capacity of my laptop

04 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

The point I was making was that there are different thicknesses, but thinking on, it's the original HD out of my FZ that wouldn't fit in two other laptops because it's a few mm too thick.

Regarding the drive thickness. The standard I think is 9.5 mm but it can be as thin as 7 mm or as thick as 15. I knew there were different thicknesses but I wasn't sure what the exact standard was.

FTR, my Dell for work has a 9.5mm thick drive in it (I think), my HP Pavilion laptop for home has a 9.5mm thick drive as well.

That's all mathematics. The largest RAM currently supported in Ultimate is 196GB. But there is no PC that has a mobo to fit the bill. And with the current Windows architecture it will be hard to even make full use of 4GBs (for bread and butter applications - different for games or CAD).

Just out of curiosity, what drive was it?

I have a 300GB Velociraptor, in a 3.5" adaptor. The drive itself is 2.5", but thicker than a standard notebook drive.
