Z50-70 (59429623) SSD options

My laptop has ST1000LM024 (1TB, 5400 RPM) disk. Ever since I bought the laptop the boot time seemed to worry me. When I was using Win8 it seemed ok, then I upgraded to Win10. Boot time was not at all acceptable. Afterwards I did a clean install of Win10. Boot time never improved. 


After looking at the specs of my laptop I figured that the internal HDD could be the bottleneck. I want to swap the spinning disk with an SSD variant. Could you suggest if my laptop can accomodate an SSD (I think it should). I am not sure of what model of SSD I should purchase. And what should be the connector type. Does my laptop motherboard have a provision to connect an SSD?


If you would be so kind, could you suggest SSD models that I can compare? 


Laptop model: z50-70

Machine type model: 59429623


Thank you.

Hi pacman256 , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


You may refer to this post as discussed option for SSD upgrade similar for your model. 

Other upgrades replacing the optical drive done here.


Basic specifications Hardware manual (page27) :

Storage: HDD: SATA 3.0, 6Gb/s , 2.5-inch, 7 mm / 9.5 mm SATA 

256 GB SSD tested compatible as other resellers may offer bigger SSD capacity although not specific on the FRU list of harddrive from the hardware manual ( item 11 pages 79-80).
