    Need Help on G74SX Hybrid Solid State Hard Drive Compatibility !!!

    Hi, guys. I need some help on changing my G74SX HHD. I saw my laptop spec and it said it's only support up to 1TB of HSSD and I know it's mean 2x500GB of HSSD. But I have a plan on getting 2 of 750GB HSSD in my laptop.

    My questions are will this G74SX support 1.5TB (2x750GB) of HSSD? What would happened to this laptop after I installed 1.5TB of HSSD and it doesn't support? And I need some advises before I buy those HSSD.

    Yes, it'll definitely support the two 750Gb drives.....in fact, that's what many configurations ship with. Two 750Gb HDDs.

    I don't know where you saw that it only supports up to 1Tb of HDD space, but that's not accurate. (Perhaps you were just seeing a spec that your configuration has 1Tb of HHD capacity? That doesn't mean it's limited to that.)

    Thank for your reply.

    But that's not what I meant. I mean would this G74SX support 1.5TB of "Hybrid Solid State Drive" not that normal "Hard Disk Drive"? but i saw the spec list said only support up to 1TB of "Hybrid Solid State Drive".

    Hybrid drives should be fine unless Intel mobile chipsets have some objection to them. I've not seen anything documented though.
