HDD upgrade on W500

2008-12-06, 1:47 AM

I've purchased a W500 with 160Gb hdd and Intel Turbo Memory.
When you choose a hdd with more capacity on web site, the intel turbo memory option becomes unavaialble... So I want to change the hdd when I get the notebook to a one with 320gb capacity and dont' know what than to do with Intel Turbo Memory.
If someone knows anything about it, please tell me...

On the US website you can configure Turbo Memory with a 160GB, 250GB or 320GB hard drive.  There is a 200GB hard drive option that you cannot choose because it includes full disk encryption.  As long as your replacement drive does not include disk encryption, it should work fine with your Turbo Memory.

Dear friend, I've purchased the notebook on US web site and I'm sure, when you choose option with hdd more than 16gb capacity for W500, the Intel Turbo Memory option is being disabled...
