I want to upgrade the SSD to 256gb Crucial M4 but not sure whether it is compatible or not?

DrAwesome109 September 18, 2011 5:03:03 AM If the hard drive you're buying is SATA 2 and 2.5 in form factor, it's compatible. SATA 3 hasn't been used in any laptops yet, and won't be for quite some time.

It is a SATA II. awccheung September 25, 2011 9:42:45 PM I called Crucial. They told me that it is not compatible because the Samsung SSD in the Portege is 7mm thick, while the Crucial M4 is 9.5mm thick. Thank you for all your answers. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
