I’ve been running SSDs in my desktops for a few years now, so now that I’m picking up a new laptop I don’t think I can go back to a HDD. From reviews, it sounds like the laptop I’m purchasing has a spare bay for an additional hard drive. The specifications say that the drive interface is SATA. In a mobile device does this typically mean mSATA, or would it say that if that was the case?
I’m new to upgrading laptop hard drives and am unsure about the form factors for SSD. Do I need to get SSD specific for laptops, or does any SSD typically work? Any help for the laptop noob appreciated.
I’ll keep an eye on that, thanks! From what I understand it’s a new model of laptop, so maybe I’ll get lucky. I can’t find the detailed interface specification anywhere online, so I’m just going to have to take a look at it myself as soon as it arrives.
