Lenovo Z500: Replace HDD with SSD

2013-11-16, 10:51 AM

Hi Guys,

 

I am looking to replace the HDD with and SSD in my z500. I am just worried though as the SSD i want to buy is 7.1mm thick. Would this be too thin for the caddy in my laptop?

 

Thanks :)

All drives are fixed to the laptop, and SSDs have mounting holes in the same place as HDDs. I cannot say for sure how it is mounted in Z500, but in my Y580 I had no problem installing 7mm SSD.

How thick is the Lenovo z500 HDD? Is there any way I could fit a 12,5 mm HDD inside?

The Z500 hdd is 9.5mm thick. The 12.5mm hdd cannot be use in place of it.
