I need to fit the SSD 520 Series to my HP Laptpn - Elitebook 2170p or 8470P .
My Qs :
1.What is the Thickness of this SSD 520 Series attached in the pic? - 9.5 mm or 7mm ?
Attached is the pic( sorry I didnt click it otherwise i too could have measured it)
2.What is the system requirement for interfacing above SSD to any laptop(OS - Win7/8, RAM?).
I am disappointed to see that maximum Size of Hard Drive which Can be interfaced is 256 GB and That too on 8570P.
According to the picture you posted this is the HP version of the Intel® SSD 520 Series and it appears to be 7mm because it does not have the plastic spacer on top.
The drives are operating system independent; however, we suggest using an operating system with TRIM support (Windows* 7, Windows* 8, Linux*) and a SATA II or SATA III port. We highly recommend verifying with the computer manufacturer for a list of validated SSD models for your system.
