T61 + SSD?

#1 Post by Boy2006 » Fri May 01, 2020 10:08 am

Could my good old T61 handle a 2,5" SSD?
I read often a Laptop must support this and that to not destroy a SSD by writing tons of stuff to it.
Does the SSD Manufactures fix that problem?
Thanks!

Definitely, just make sure to install the Middleton BIOS to unlock the motherboard's SATA II speed capabilities.

There's good information here:

You'll be amazed at the performance increase compared to an HDD.

Middleton's BIOS includes wifi-unlocking.
