Can I put a datacenter SSD into my laptop.

I have an intel D3-S4510 datacenter SSD that has more storage than my current SSD. I know it works when I put it in my laptop but will there be any problems if I trade it for my boot drive? My laptop is thinkpad T510 with a 3GBps sata.

So long as it connects and there's no BS on the laptop sides *coughdellcough*

 

95% of laptops should just work if it connects.

It says it uses 1W of power when idle. Will my laptop battery be reduced?

Well technically yes, it needs to use electricity to operate. That said you probably other things in there eating energy faster than the ssd.

Compared to an HDD that's nothing.

Cool, my current ssd uses 60mw when idle. 0.06 W. So will the new one make my battery way less, or just a little bit? My laptop has 80 Watt hours
