Upgrading to a SSD HD on an Older inspiron
Hello. I haven't done any upgrades or builds in a while. I have a dell Inspiron N4010. I'm currently waiting for a Windows disk to arrive so that I can reformat this bad boy. Running so slow. But I also Wondered. Hmm, Maybe I can install a SSD drive and put the OS on that. I don't really need the 320 GB HD it has now. I want boot up performance. Not storage.
Question (bare with me, I have been out of the game for a while). I'm positive this is a SATA (not II Or III, just SATA) HD.
question: can I put a SATA II or SATA III HD in here?? Also, if I can, will I receive the full capabilities of that Drive. I'm noticing I may run into an issue finding SATA SSD's any way. I don't want to get a SATA III if I can't utilize the perf specs. I would just get a SATA II (if compatible)..
I'm trying to keep this project as cost effective as possible. I'm not much of a Gamer anymore, and most of What I do is on Tablets these days anyway.
Thanks for all your Help.
