I have a Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5320 laptop (http://www.toshiba.c...850/C855D-S5320), and I've been looking to upgrade it, but it's a bit of an older laptop, and I'm not 100% sure I can upgrade to an SSD with this model. Would I be able to do so? I know most most laptops are able to, but I want to be sure.

the simple answer is yes you can,

won't go fully into the hardware connection details that stop a ssd from being used in a laptop, but yours is a sata 300 connection type so it's a simple case of open the laptop, unplug the old drive and put a new sata ssd in it's place (doesn't need to be a toshiba made ssd either.).

 

physical dimensions your looking at are a 9.5mm or less (some drives come with a spacer if they are thinner so they can be used in a 9.5mm bay without any movement.) 2.5inch ssd.
