    Hi all :)

    I have a Toughbook with the number "cf-53aszcgfp", mk1 I think.
    I would like to use a SSD with it, currently it has a 300 GB HDD.

    Is it possible to install a msata SSD in it?

    Alternative: Is it possible to install a DVD caddy in it? Then I would put the HDD into the caddy and a SSD into the normal slot.

    CF 53 uses 2.5" hard drive
    No factory slot for msata
    msata in a 2.5" adapter would be possible.
    msata or m.2 in the DVD adapter is also possible.
    See pictures.

    Thanks :)

    If I would get a SSD and caddy, would you put the SSD in the main port and the HDD in the caddy for best SSD speed and HDD for storing?
