Will my Acer Aspire 5755G-9471 support an SSD and SATA III

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,


Sorry for the infinitely noobish question.

However, I wanted to know whether or not my laptop would 1) support an SSD and 2) whether or not it can support SATA III?
I know SSD's are backwards compatible to work with SATA II.

My system specs are:
Acer Aspire 5755G-9471
Intel Core i7 2720QM quad core processor (Sandy Bridge)
Intel HM65 mobo (Sandy Bridge)
USB 3.0
Nvidia Geforce GT 540m
ADATA Supreme Series 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

Thank you in advance for your answer.

a SSD would definitely work as it uses SATA. I'm currently using a SSD in my MBP with SATA 1

Thanks a ton! I wanted to be sure before I lay out the coin for an SSD. Funny thing is, before I created this thread, I had contacted Acer support, The tech said an SSD would not work with my system, I couldn't understand why, as SATA is SATA, I guess we know who the real experts are. wink.gif

Thanks again for your help!
