Assume someone wants to buy a laptop but it is not offered with the make/model SSD she wants. The SSD that is wanted comes in 2.5" SATA3 form factor.
To save money, the purchaser could configure the laptop with a 2.5" SATA3 HDD (with the intention of swapping it out for the SSD). My question is, are there any hardware/firmware considerations for moving from an HDD to an SSD that the buyer should be aware of? In other words, if the user will be installing SSD, should she buy the laptop with lowest cost SSD so the overall system is "pre-configured" for SSD on arrival?
