I'm looking to get a larger hard drive for my Thinkpad Edge E430, and I have two questions.
The current drive is a Toshiba MK5061GSY - SATA 300. It's 0.4 inches high. I'm looking at a WD Green WD20NPVX - SATA 600. It's 0.6inches high.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Ivy Bridge CPU in the E430 supports SATAIII (6 Gb/s) for the main hdd and optical drive bay.

The height of the E430 hdd bay is suitable for 7 and 9.5 mm (not sure what that equates to in inches).
