Re: T410 Hard disk upgrade

The T410 should be able to handle a 1TB SSD.


Lenovo's maximum specs reflect what was available at the time the product was manufactured. Even though higher capacity HDDs and SSDs are available today the official specs remain unchanged. (One reason is that in order for Lenovo to state 1TB is the maximum they'd have to test it in the T410, something they're not going to do for a product they no longer sell.)


Also consider that the SATA bus on the T410 is rated at only 3Gb/s speeds. Current SATA interfaces and SSDs can run at 6GB/s. While the interfaces are compatible, i.e. a SATA-III (6Gb/s) SSD will work in a SATA-II (3Gb/s) computer, you won't get the benefit of the higher speed. Nevertheless you'll see a substantial performance improvement by going from HDD to SSD.

If you are running windows 7, make sure you have service pack 1 installed before moving to a big drive.  It is likely to be advanced format.
