Re: SSD Solid State Drives: Upgrading the Ultraportable X40 and X41

You need plenty of RAM to be able to disable virtual memory, and you need to be sure you have no applications which rely on it. 

 

The X41 maxes out at 2GB, not plenty by today's standards.

Yes it's an official Lenovo FRU. I didn't find it on lenovo.com either, but you can find it on the IBM Parts site I linked to a few posts back.

Bananaman, you said you got 41W0737 (but not 41W0736)? I couldn't find 41W0737 as a valid FRU on IBM's website. Maybe you meant 41W0736?

Lenovo parts have two numbers, the marketing or assembly part number and the replacement part number. 41W0737 is the assembly part number, 41W0736 is the field replacement part number. image Google 41W0736 and you'll see the label on the drive.

Thank you. So they refer to the same piece of hardware, right?

 

Does anyone know whether FRU 41W0736 has any on-board cache?

I queried the SSD, and the 41W0737 supports TRIM. Yay!

I read recently that the fsutil command does not tell you whether a drive supports TRIM, but that it merely tells you that Windows is sending the TRIM command to the SSD. The article in which I originally found the command seems to be in error. It appears that the best way to determine TRIM support is to check the vendor specs, or run benchmarks. Since only the very latest drives claim TRIM support, I suspect that this now fairly old 41W0736/41W0737, which is actually a repackaged Samsung MCCOE64GEMPP, does not. This means the other methods have to be used to prevent performance degradation over time.

 

I have to say that using my X41, I haven't noticed any degradation, but the SSD is still only about one third full.

For those who are having a bear of a time getting the Lenovo 60GB SSD (41W0736) to fit in an X40 .. loosen the two screws on either side of the interface pins on the drive ... then gently squeese the enclosure near each of the screws (so that it is thinner) while re-tightening each screw.  This must "fix" the alignment - the drive then went right in for me!

Re: SSD Solid State Drives: Upgrading the Ultraportable X40 and X41

Purchased my SSD HD off eBay Kingspec 60Gb $239.00 (see link below - they also sell a 32Gb for less).   Have installed Windows 7 and love it.   Windows 7 knows to install the Pen drivers (nice btw).  Had no problems, used the update software from Lenovo for Windows 7 for the X41 Tablet.   It was well worth it.  Feel like the computer finally runs like it should have.  I feel like I have a brand new laptop.   The only error message I get is when it boots, but it bypasses that automatically via the setting in the bios as recommended elsewhare.   The drive worked the first time, installed the first time - (everything has to line up just right) these are small parts so be very gentle and take your time.
