This is a SSD with 7 mm therefore I am using a spacer.

Something like this:

Re: X200 keyboard shows a little flex - especially on the right side

so there is lot of space on the top of the hdd. This may explain the extra amount of flex on that area. The X200 was shipped with 9.5 mm drives.

I noticed, the HDD would be in some rubber spacers at the edges. That means, even the HDD has some space between keyboard and HDD and therefore flexes. I will test this today and report.
