Just wondering. Thanks. =)
Laptops use 2.5" drives, which is what most SSD's are. But make sure you check, there are also 3.5" and 1.8" models that I am aware of.
check the connector, micro sata is used on the 1.8" C300 and regular sata for the 2.5" c300 for example
ah thanks, good to know about the potential connector difference. so in a laptop, the typical connector for a SATA 2.5" laptop HDD won't be the right one for a typical SDD unless you buy the 1.8" models intended for laptop use?
The SATA connectors are the same for 2.5 and 3.5. A 2.5-in SSD is laptop ready.
AFAIK, pretty much all 2.5" SATA SSDs are designed the normal 9.5mm height, & as others have already mentioned, use the same connectors.
There are some 2.5" HDDs that are slightly taller, 12.5mm, which can be incompatible with many notebooks, but i do not believe this is the case for any SSDs of that size.
It's mainly just for the larger 2.5" HDDs, like WD's mobile 2.5" 1 TB, which for example, is 12.5mm instead of the normal 9.5mm
