Hello, I have a Lenovo X201 Tablet PC. Would like to replace my current hard drive with this. Will it work?
The form factor of typical SSD's like the SanDisk Extreme series is the same as typical 2.5" hard drives that are used in laptops, only sometimes just a bit thinner (not as thick). The connector is the same SATA connector. I am not sure of the speed of the SATA controller in the ThinkPad, and it may slow down the SanDisk Extreme a bit. But it will smoke any spinning disk, that is for sure, and put out less heat and noise and be more robust. Nothing speeds up a PC more than a good SSD. Since the Lenovo has a lame hard drive, the SSD should really make a difference. Note that I am assuming it takes a normal 2.5" HDD with the typical SATA connector, which it likely does. Another cool thing is that SSD's need to be periodically 'trimmed' and Windows 7 and 8 do this. Win 7 and 8 are 'SSD aware'.
