I have read this thread but I'm not sure what to look out for and what will cause incompatibility when purchasing an SSD hard drive for this laptop.


It seems to me as if this computer supports 1.8" drives at the SATAII standard.

You will be unable to put in any drives in of a different size (2.5", 3.5", 1.2")

While the laptop supports the SATAII standard, the SATA standards are forward and backwards compatible so you can put in any SATA drive. You just will be limited to operating at the lowest standard. (If you have a SATAIII drive it will operate at SATAII speeds).

Its seems that this computer also has a option to replace the CD drive with a hard drive carrier that supports 2.5" drives. I'm not sure at what SATA standard.

Depending on your needs something like this seems suitable though with this particular drive you will be limited to SATAII speeds.
