1. Well, just sticking the M4 in place of teh 1TB will not net a working computer. You will have to reinstall Windows, Unix, Linux, or your choice of other OS on there for it to work. But yes, your laptop will work with an M4, or any SSD.

2. I would assume so. Most laptops out there do support it in some fashion. IIRC, QM77 chipset has 2 SATA III ports, and both should be HDD ports should the laptop support more than one.

3. This is a little tricky. Technically you can, but samsung has no drivers on their tech support tab, so you will likely have to hunt them down for yourself. You can get the GPU driver from AMD, and the chipset/USB3 driver from Intel. Other than that, you shouldn't need any drivers (maybe a wlan).

3a. You may/will have to disable secureboot in the BIOS also. Shouldn't be too difficult.
