Hi danjordanX,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It is possible to replace the current HDD to an SSD as offered by some resellers like Crucial.

As originally recommended HDD are mostly SATA III (FRU list item 21 page 82-83 of the hardware manual) they do offer backward compatibility to SATA II interface.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Spidey, thank you very much for your answer. Well, If i may, i would like to ask another question. 

As you aswered, It is possible to use SSD in this model. But, being more specific, a SSD with this characteristics and dimensions would work?

- 2.5” (7mm) SATA III (6GB/s) 

- Up to 540MB/s read and 520MB/s write

- 3.9 x 2.8 x 0.3 inches

 

Sorry for the trouble and thank you very much in advance!

Hi danjordanX,

 

Greetings.

 

Since upgrades are not included with the original OEM settings, device upgrades can be universal (example 2.5" 7mm form factor SATAIII SSD) to match the fit. Specific details such as read and write depends on model and brand so it may not be significant. 

 

For a good reference, you can give your machine a scan with crucial as they are expected to work. Check for feedback like "known to work" for your model and with good return option from the resellers just in case the BIOS failed whitelist recognition.

 

Regards
