I am having a ASUS F8Vr laptop. It has a 250GB SATA I HDD. I am planing of changing it to a SSD HDD, may b Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F360GBGS-BK. Not decided yet. Can I do this?

I know the performance of the disk will be reduced as it is SATA III but I will be upgrading the laptop in some time. Till then can SSD replace my current HDD?

Specs of my current HDD.

As the SATA connectors and communication protocol have remained backwards compatible across versions, there should not be a problem with installing the drive. See this Wikipedia article for more details.
