Hey there, @Fercho!

You should take a look at your laptop's manual. As long as your model incorporates a SATA III (6 Gb/s) connector, you shouldn't have any issues with the SSD upgrade. It would definitely boost your load and boot up times, especially if you are upgrading from an HDD to an SSD.

Even if your laptop model was a SATA II (3 Gb/s), it'd still not be a big deal as SATA connections are backwards compatible. The only issue you would experience with an SSD and a SATA II connection is that it would bottleneck the SSD's performance to 300 MB/s which si the maximum bandwidth transfer speed of a SATA II port.

Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any additional questions. :)
Cheers,
