What SSD will fit in my laptop?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
May be a stupid question but I just recently acquired a laptop (Compaq Presario V6133CL) and was wondering what SSD's can I put inside of this laptop for cheap and around 100GB of storage. Thanks!

I just resurrected an HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop, which is essentially a sibling of your Presario. I didn't have the hard drive, so I put a 90 GB OCZ Vertex 3 in it (since this is a fixer-upper, I wasn't so concerned with the less-than-stellar reputation of that drive. I got it on sale, so...)

Yours, like mine, is a SATA 1, so performance-wise it doesn't make a bit of difference what drive you put in it - it will be limited by that first-generation SATA. The SSD will make it quite a bit snappier than a spinner, of course.

My AS SSD stats. Dunno why it's in German. Straight Windows 7 32bit install, no special Intel drivers or anything.

Nice first post, and welcome! I just had an idea, can I take my Intel X25-M 80GB from my desktop and use that? If so I will just upgrade my desktops SSD and move the Intel X25-M 80GB to my laptop. Thanks for the quick replies.

Why not? It should work, you just have to reinstall windows, or clone the hdd of the laptop, you cant just swap hard drives
