getting a SSD into a T420s

2012-02-26, 10:15 AM

Hi all,

Do 9,5mm tall SSD fit into T420s?

I have already done my upgrade, but due to my lack of knowledge, I was bound to get the only 7.5mm available which is the Intel 320 series.

If 9.5mm is possible, I may look to upgrade to a faster RW rate SSD....

thank you,

Jack

See http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147138.  It's 7mm.

The Samsung 830 series SSD is 7mm as is the Crucial M4. Both of these drives have good performance and reliability. Personally I'd go with the Samsung.
