How do I check if my laptop supports m.2 SSD?

HP ProBook 6470b
Microsoft Windows XP (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I was wondering if my laptop does support m.2 SSD or mSata? I was looking for the following SSDs.

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-850-EVO-Internal-MZ-N5E250BW/dp/B00TGIVZTW?tag=hardwarevol03-20

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-850-mSATA-2-Inch-MZ-M5E250BW/dp/B00TGIVTP2?tag=hardwarevol03-20

 

 

Are any of these SSDs  compatible with my laptop?

 

 

Any information will be helpful. Thanks

Hello @GBL84 and thanks for your reply,

 

If I am not wrong the links which you provided are for 2.5 inch drives. I did not managed to find any m.2 or mSata model.

 

BRs,

Kyriakos

Service Manual:

 

Manual

 

Flash cache Intel 24-GB mSATA module (Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT), not available on computer models equipped with WWAN or SSD)

 

It dates from prior to M.2 hardware and a small (24 or 32 gig)  mSATA flash cache is the only kind of mSATA you can install.

Those are not really a storage drive but bind with a mechanical drive to speed it up somewhat.

 

A 2.5 inch SATA-III SSD in lieu of a mechanical hard drive is actually a much faster option for you.
