Yes a SSD will "fit" into the laptop but I was concerned (before I buy the SSD) if a modern SSD was compatible with the motherboard of the old laptop. I was under the impression that the motherboard of an OLD computer might prohibit the use of a SSD. If the m. board is compatible, it is easy enough to install the SSD I believe.
