Questions about this item:

Jon F  Hello, I have a Lenovo X201 Tablet PC. Would like to replace my current hard drive with this. Will it work?
DENNIS N  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'.
John S  I am thinking of buying a new MacBook Air but already know I'll need the extra HD space. Do you provide the Torex (sp?) screwdriver to get into the computer to exchange the 128 Flash out? Is it possible?
HARVEY L  I have 4 of these SSD units. You will need to buy your own screw driver as nothing comes with the drive tool wise.
Shopper  can this be compatible for iMac 27" 2012?
BRUCE A  Yes, it should work just fine.
