Wich SSD for an Envy 13?

Has someone changed the original hard drive for an SSD in the Envy 13? I need to know which SSD should I buy , I mean which one is compatible. I know that should be a micro SATA 1.8. But I do not know if any of this kind serves, and do not know if I can put one of 256GB as I want. Apparently, I can only put one of 160GB. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

  1. What is the exact model number of the computer? They have many models, and to ensure compatibility, want to make sure to give you the correct information. :-)
  2. Also you could pull out the DVD tray and install a SSD. That way a ssd for OS n programs and everything else on HDD. That way you could buy a standard size ssd.

    This drive would work perfectly, it is very reliable and fits nicely. It costs only about 90 bucks for it. No 256gb drives are available for a decent price.

  6. You can find one on Amazon too.
