Time has finally arrived to upgrade the HDD in my everyday laptop to a SSD. Since I’ll re-install Ubuntu anyway when I do this I’ve a couple of questions.
Laptop is Model NNB-X04504 7370236-001 serial number NKW25CSW 0004 E 00394.
It’s few years old but still going strong. Currently running(from BIOS info panel):
motherboard series W25CSW
AMI BIOS 1.03.05 KBC/EC firmware version 1.03.04
ME firmware 188.8.131.527
Is there a firmware update available that I can/should install before the upgrade?
Is it possible to fit an mSATA drive or is this a factory fit only?
Any pointers on which SSD? I know it’ll take 7 or 9.5mm - Is there a preference?
Probably going for 1TB WD, Samsung or Crucial unless you advise otherwise.
Thanks in advance for your time.
