I have a lenovo V470 and as an Xmas treat I am thinking about upgrading to Solid State Drive (SSD) to utilise the benifit. However, I don't know if my laptop's motherboard is capable of supporting SSDs.
What I did so far is to go to crucial and scan my system. However, I think crucial's SSDs may not be financially ideal choice and there could be cheaper options. Nevertheless, it still doesn't confirm how to understand whether my laptop supports SSDs at all.
Could someone please provide some suggestion? My understanding is that it if a laptop supports SATA II or SATA III then it should also support SSD.
IF APPROPRIATE I would also like to know the ramifications for cloning my existing hard drive (as opposed to the safest method - reinstalling everything).
