CF-73 - Will a SATA SSD work?

#1 Post by Red44 »

I was considering replacing the hard drive on my CF-73. Can anyone tell me what type of HDD the CF-73 uses and if a SATA SSD will work? Considering you can get 60 or 120Gb SATA SSD's very cheaply these days it would seem like an inexpensive way of upgrading performance, assuming it can be done of course?

Kinda thought as much after doing a little Googling. Pity that, would have been a nice cheap upgrade.

You can put a mSATA SSD into a PATA adapter that will fit for around $60~$70. Easy mod, more info here:
