    i bought a toshiba mk3008gah (30gb) but now im inteerested in change with the 60gb one (mk6008gal), are they equal? i mean that if they have the same conector and things like that, the gb different is elemental that theyre not equal.


    they have different letters, that this mean anything?

    H or L?
    the 60gb h is 8mm instead of 5mm of the 30gb l...

    did i have to cut the one to fit the 8mm? or not? i know that with a 5mm hdd i havent got to cut anything.

    I seem to remember that GALs are low profile (5mm thick) and GAH are high profile (8mm thick). But they both have a ZIF/LIF connector, so they're both OK as a replacement for the internal SSD.

    Note though that you'll have to trim one of the plastic posts for the GAH one to fit inside.

    thanks SbM

    i think i will pursache the GAH one, for only 18€ more y get 2x capacity, about the trim, i dont like to cut it but 60gb are likely :p

    my warranty was avoid when i put windows... so cutting a trim will happen anything...
