As long as it fits within the space (2.5" x 9.5mm) and has the correct SATA interface for your system SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) any SSD should work (that can run at SATA II).

The largest I've seen is 2TB but that will set you back around $3,400. You may want to reconsider the size to something more economical like a 128GB or 256GB unit for around $140~300.

Dan I believe Sata 3 is 6Gb/s.


Yep, I just checked. It is 6 Gb/s.


Opps my bad! This system is SATA II not III
