*** I had a 18GB disk (MK1814GAV) in my T8000 before I switched to a T8100
(with 12GB). The machine was originally purchased with this disk.

The 8100/8200 series works fine with 20GB disks (as long as it's a 9.5mm
high drive such as the MK2016GAP from Toshiba). They (i.e. Toshiba) have
also recently announced the MK3017GAP - a 30GB ATA-5 9.5mm disk with a
100MB/s transfer rate (compared to 66MB/s of the MK2016GAP).

At present I have no idea if the 30GB model works on the 8K series.
