I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 and think of upgrading to an SSD (likely the 40 GB Intel since I don't need much space). I removed the HDD
and saw it is a 100 GB SATA from June 2006. Hitachi HTS721010GSA00 with 7200 rpm. no cables, it seems to plug right into the power and SATA plug inside the laptop. Wil that be the same type as a new SSD? I mean position of the plugs. there is a little plastic piece from the laptop case attached to the HDD. I wonder how that transfers to the SSD?
Will I encounter any problems? I didn't see any laptop-specific the Newegg Laptop SSDs bring me straight to the normal SSDs.
From what Intels says
it seems to be very similar in dimensions
I googled to some, but didn't get clear answers.
