X1 SSD changeable?

2013-03-21, 11:58 AM

Hi everyone,

 

After searching the internet for some time I still haven't been able to find any information about whether it's possible to change the SSD inside the X1. 

Ofcourse it's physically possible but does it void the warranty?

you can change the SSD on the X1, it takes a 2.5 inch 7 mm drive. Or you can also also use a mSATA drive (if you don't have the wwan card installed).

I heard the drive was a proprietary form factor. Is that not the case?

I realized the response was for the X1 and not the carbon. What are the options for a carbon?

X1 Carbon has a proprietary drive form factor, not the normal X1. I use a normal Samsung 830 SSD in my X1.

Re: X1 SSD changeable?

Hi,

 

I have a X1 with a 320gb HDD, it is a Core i5. I would like to change it to the Samsing SSD 500GB 840 series EVO. Can anyone tell me if it is compatible? Thank you for any help on this. Is it realy worth the investment?

 

Regards,

 

Guido

@guidokuhn,

if it is 7 mm and 2.5 inch, then it will work with the X1.
