Support for SSD on ELitebook 8570P

Elitebook 8570P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I'm thinking of upgrading my system with an SSD, I’ve a couple of doubts firstly which type of connector will my system support if I’m gonna make it my boot drive mini PCIe/mSATA or SATA SSD, secondly what’s the maximum storage size I can use with it. 

Please can someone answer these for me?

This model which is several years old now, has several storage options. The mainstream option would be just to replace the 2.5 inch mechanical hard drive with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. There would be no max capacity. 2 TB are commonly available and I have seen 4 TB models. 

 

You could put a 42mm mSATA mSSD in the WWAN slot but they are not that easy to find and generally more expensive than a 2.5 inch SATA SSD and not any faster and even not quite as fast so nothing really to be gained by doing so.

Hello Huffer,

 

If I use the mSATA can I use it as my bootable?

Yes as long as a 2.5 is not present. Not sure why you would do that.
