First of all i have a Vaio laptop model: VPCEB3C5E with an intel core i5, 3GB Ram and 286GB HDD, and what i want to do is upgrade the Ram to 8GB and instead of a HDD, i was thinking of a 250GB SSD, more specifically this one:
The samsung 840 series 250GB 2.5inch SATA. The question is will it work with my laptop? Will it fit, and work with the motherboard etc... I have a windows 7 64bit so the Ram should be fine right? If any futher details are needed dont hestiate to ask!
Yep. That SSD will be just fine. And you are good with the ram too...8GB wont be a problem.
Thank you very much for the very fast reply (tried posting on several forums with nothing), i wont need a bracket or anything to hold the SSD into place would i? Since im on a laptop and according to PC Wizard my current HDD is 2.5"
I understand where your coming from but the 840 series is better than the 830 series when it comes down to random reads and writes which is what a computer is mostly used for, and even when it comes down to sequntial read and write speeds the 830 is only better in the writing standards and not by very much
I would get the PRO but then again i dont want to spend a heap on upgrades since it is a laptop and my graphics card isnt very good (Intel HD graphics) and so i cant upgrade it (1. integrated & 2.laptop)
