Thank you Banhien for your help on this matter - now I will be able to get this upgrade done thanks to your help. I will get a enclosure as you suggested for the job. Your help is much appreciated - George in Florida

Yes, it should be a simple task and Samsung 870EVO is a good choice

Thank you very much for your reply to my question !   By chance do you have a recommendation on a sata to USB cable - USB 3.0 to 2.5" cable to copy the hard drive that's in my laptop now to the new Samsung SSD via USB 3 -so I can then make the switch of the hard drives ?  I don't know if there is a preferred cable that I need to do this job when using the Samsung SSD. ?  Thanks again - George in Fla.

I do many times each year therefor I use a dock. In your case you can use an enclosure similar to the following ones

You can connect to your machine to move or clone your existing drive to new drive. After swapping them, you can use old HDD as an external hard drive.
