SSD and Memory Upgrade for T440P

Hi Everyone,

 

I own a Thinkpad T440P and its current config as follows...

i5-4200M(2.50GHz)
4GB RAM + 4GB RAM
500GB 7200rpm HD
14in 1366x768 LCD
Intel HD Graphics
Intel 802.11abgn wireless
WWAN Option
Bluetooth
1Gb Ethernet
UltraNav
Secure Chip
Camera
6c Li-Ion
Win 7 Pro 64
 
1. I am looking to upgrade Memory from current 4 + 4 to 4 + 8 making it a total of 12 GB and wondering whether the following memory is compatible or not?
2. If the above memory is not compatible, any recommendations?
 
3. Also, looking to upgrade 500 GB HDD to SSD and wondering whether the following SSDs are compatible or not. 
 
4. If both the above SSDs are compatible, which one is better?
5. Do I need to buy any additional mounts/hardware to replace my existing HDD with one of the above SSDs?
 
Your help and guidance are much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: SSD and Memory Upgrade for T440P

Reference spec sheet:

http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T440p/ThinkPad_T440p_Platform_Specificat...

 

Memory

16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

2 slot each @8gb=16 GB max.

I like crucial memory, but any memory within spec should work.  Order with money back guarantee.

 

 

If you remove the HDD and add 2.5 inch SSD, the bracket and screws are there.

 

Crucial, Samsung, PNY, etc all offer similar 2.5 inch SSD.  Compare prices. 

 

For the clone, I like:

You may need to buy an external USB HDD box to hold the 2.5 inch SSD during the clone.

Re: SSD and Memory Upgrade for T440P

Thanks scelxman.

 

Do you see any compatibility issues with the below samsung ssd like missing drivers or motherboard incompatibility etc?

Just want to double check as the laptop I am planning on upgrading is outside of USA and I am buying the hardware in USA and sending them there. So, returning is a little challenging if things didnt work out.

 

Appreciate your help.

Matches spec.

Try this for shopping.

I like buying what works within my budget, up or down price wise.

Failure during install really sucks.

Great choice.

Spec:

Some: Solid State Drive (SSD) / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high  <in HDD slot.
