New 160 gig hard drives with an Inspiron 9300

Hi All,
I was just wondering does anyone know if the 137gig hard drive limit (48 bit LBA) is going to be an issue when upgrading hard drives in the Inspiron 9300....as I want to put the new Seagate 5400.3 160 gig drive in ???

No; most Dell laptops made since 2003 have 48 bit LBA updates in the recent BIOS revisions.
