As long as it physically fits in the loacation ( Height ), then any SATA 2.5" drive should be fine, but you need to remove the caddy and use it for the new drive.

I hope this helps !

The best work around here if you want to add more storage is just add a USB 2 hdd, replacing the hdd may void your OEM COA
