SSD 3Gbps or 6Gbps?

Hi folks,
I have brought a HP 2000-2116TU Notebook PC (B8N01PA) Notebook PC
(Link-http://www8.hp.com/in/en/products/laptops/product-detail.html?oid=5277693&jumpid=reg_r1002_inen_c-001_title_r0001)
with the following spec:

- Intel® Core™ i5-3210M
- Intel HM75 Express
- 2 GB 1600 MHz DDR3(1 x 2 GB) + I have added a 4GB same, so Now = 6GB
- 500 GB SATA (5400 rpm) + etc.

Now, I have to replace (just replace, no add) the HDD with a 64/128GB SSD and thus my questions are:

1) How could I know that it supports 3Gbps or 6Gbps (any tools, convention, etc.) SSD?
2) If it comes out to support 3Gbps, would adding a 6Gbps is worth it or buying a 3Gbps would be same?

I would appreciate any help on this.

regards.

    yes your laptop support SATA3, if you want to check that http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/hm75-mobile-chipset-brief.pdf
    actually it worth the extra money for sata 3 SSD some times its x2 faster

    Thnx mate, I have seen that it supports up to 6Gbps on your referred document. But, just to be confirmed for exactly my model, is there anything I can double check or should I buy and put in the SSD with be sure about the 6Gbps port will be opened and connected to the internal HDD port?

    Thnx for the link.
  3. your laptop have HM75 chipset and this chipset support sata 3 (6Gbps)
    and sata is backward compatible,even sata 1 compatible with sata 3
    so go ahead and buy your SSD
