According to what I read, the max size is 100 gig hdd. It sounds like it's an ATA 2.5" drive. 5400 rpm. I saw them at newegg.com

You simply search for: Compaq nc6120 hard drive upgrade.

The max size you can upgrade to is 250gb.
The drive must be 2.5" and IDE.
There used to be larger capacity 2.5"IDE drives available, 320 and 500gb, but they're no longer making them.

Play it safe - go no larger than 120GB.
