3) DVD-RW unit for this model new if possible

4) 9 cell 6600mah battery new

160GB 5400rpm 60.00 used

2) 2(1)gb ddr2 pc4200 ram 27.00 new

thats about 151.00 on the low side!

ok for all you guys helping me upgrade there seems to be an issue with what type of HDD i got and what the CD/dvd bay type is? I assume thats where the "ultrabay slim/2000" caddy I want is going? Correct me if I'm lost in the T43 architecture, 8^(

the HDD is DEFINETLY PATA!

how do I tell if I've got an ultrabay "slim" or "2000" ?

thanks eto

It's ultrabay slim, and it can be SATA or PATA - I suggest getting a SATA one.

To go for the ultimate update on that machine, send it in to me, and I will modify it so that the main hard disk will be a SATA drive.
The latest I saw is a 1TB SATA hard disk (that is one TERA-byte, = 1,000 GigaByte) that will then fit in your T43.
Add a 2nd SATA HDD adapter and you could have 2TB hard disk space! :mrgreen:
PM me if you are interested in the SATA mod.
