I am considering getting a SSD for my laptop but I am unsure if SATA II or III would be suitable.


SSD drive.gifThe W510 only supports SATA II data rates (3.0 GB/S).  The SSD will provide a significant increase in data transfer rates.  A SATA II spec SSD is recommended.

Specifications for W510 as excerpted from PSREF sheet.


DVD burner, SATA 1.5Gb/s, 12.7mm Ultrabay Enhanced, removable
One bay for removable devices, Ultrabay Slim-compatible, 12.7mm high, bottom access
(5400 rpm) or 320GB (7200 rpm) /
SATA 3.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 9.5mm high, removable, upgradable, supports second disk,
Shock Mounted Hard Drive, Active Protection System
