Cheap as chips for 240gb SSD, heated
Price increased by £2.00 since the last one I bought. I thought they were supposed to be getting cheaper.
I bought one last weekend from here for £24.97 and it arrived today. I went via TCB and got about £1.50 cashback.

I also note that I ordered the exact item in April 2019 and back then it cost £24.98 and back in Aug 2018 the same price for 120GB integreal P series.

True but I got my last one around Black Friday and it was £19 from MM, so prices have crept back up as you might have expected.
The prices are going up again for ram memory and ssd storage

I bought one for £17.99 from the same shop just before Christmas. Since then the price has kept going up.

If it’s SATA then yes direct, you could easily clone your old one and this by attaching your SSD to where the CD ROM DRIVE is if laptop well that’s a bit trickier... but this is free and will do the job. easeus.com/bac…tml

Yes, and strap yourself in and secure your dentures, because the speed increase will be HUUUUUUUUGE if you have a half-decent (even if oldish) CPU.

It's a 2.5" drive that's 7mm in height. The SSD will happily fit in its place.

You will need to clone your old drive to the SSD, or do a fresh install of Windows 10 on it. Both are easy to do, using YouTube tutorials.

If you don't have a spare USB flash drive, grab a cheap 8GB USB flash drive to use for a bootable Windows 10 installer or cloning software boot drive.

If you don't know what you're doing and don't have a geek with the gear to babysit you, but you need files (photos, documents etc) from your old drive or are planning to clone it, grab one of these to put your old drive in: amazon.co.uk/POS…JC/

Sorry for the noob questions. It's a Lenovo x230 which I've dusted off after being shelved for quite some time, so thought I'd make it ready for home use.

Not sure if the Ram really needs replacing, 8gb maybe ok and 16gb overkill (non gaming).

Would this be a worthy upgrade?

You don't really need more than 8GB RAM in there. Just upgrade to the SSD and it'll be fast enough for pretty much anything except gaming and 4k video editing.

If you find it gets really warm or you can hear the fan spinning but can't feel it moving any air if you put your face by the vent, you might benefit from servicing the cooling system. Old laptops often have fluff build up in the heatsink and fan assembly. It's a quick and easy thing to clear on your laptop, by the looks of it, if it should be needed.

A few screws and panels, and it looks accessible from under the keyboard.

(Ideally you'd strip it completely and "re-paste" the CPU, but that's unlikely to be essential.)

But yeah, the x230 is worth resurrecting. It'll be faster than when it came out of the factory, I'm not kidding.

The photo shows the old drive as being 500GB capacity - ie the old one is twice as big as this deal's disk.
So, if the old drive is over half full, your stuff ain't going to fit.

You may need to do some "archiving" and freeing space, before you start trying to clone.

Thanks...it was hardly used. 250gb would be sufficient.

I'm planning to zero it out.
The old drive may be noisy, but it is worth keeping in your usb3 external case. It would make a great place to keep backups. Any backup is better than none!

Yes you can replace your old HDD by this SSD because it is 2.5". But your old HDD is 500GB but SSD just 240GB...so it's twice smaller capacity.

Wildly off-topic and a shot in the dark: Do you know anyone I can supply a SINGLE licence for Oracle VirtualBox Enterprise? I have a case for a single license for a business client but I need the extension pack, so I need a license. It's only like £50, but I literally can't find anyone to throw the money at.

I can't find an option for less than 100 units, and I obviously don't need £4k of VirtualBox licenses. The business is too small to get 100 licenses, but can't risk being unlicensed.

Unfortunately not. I was in Health Sciences, and due to the size of the org each business unit operated like an independent company.
Just to let you know I bought 150x of these for work and SanDisk ones only to find the crucial bx500 range is just £5-10 more and is definitely twice as fast! Dont buy cheap. But high quality and buy once.

Good advice, keep the fans clean & the air moving.

Got my drive today (finally) a very easy swap out. I created a usb bootloader using Rufus software for Windows.

Loading speed of the laptop has dramatically changed.

Thanks for your help.
