Hi all

 

Quick question- I want to replace the slooowww 5400 HDD in my newish Inspiron with an SSD. Unfortunately, Dell's parts chatline is not open at the moment. Does anyone know what the maximum height is that I can fit in there?

 

TIA

 

Jon

Crucial's upgrades for your specific laptop

 

 

 

Crucial's SSDs are 7mm and come with a spacer to fit 9mm bays. Pricing from pbtech is fairly competitive with buying direct from crucial too.

do spinning HDD come in 7mm? my uneducated guess is 9mm spinning HDD for a budget laptop ...





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
