More than likely, yes. You might want to call Dell but I'm sure they stick with standard parts. The Toshiba is a 9.5mm tall drive. All but the thinnest laptops will take 9.5-11mm.

Check your current drive height. It's in the middle of the left side. Get away from carpet. (Kitchens are good.) Remove the one screw, slide the bezel down, and pull it out.

I concur - I haven't used the CPx models, but I've used/been around a variety of Dell laptops and it should be fine.

Hi,

I am sure that the Dell Latitude CPx H uses a 9.5mm Hard Drives, but not sure whether it would support 60GB drives, the max that I have seen is 20 GB

20GB was the largest stock drive, and you won't get them to certify anything larger, but they kept updating the BIOS for over two years after the 20's were factory equipment. Through mid 2002. There weren't any magic "large drive" limits from 20-60GB they would have had to fix, so potential problems would be Latitude specific.

I'd flash to the latest BIOS (A14) if you haven't already and give it a shot. Worst case you can turn the drive for a small loss or use it in your new laptop.
