Hi,

I just purchased an 4x4-BOX 4800U mini PC and in addition to an M.2 SSD, I want to install a 2.5" hard disk. I have with a 12.5 mm hard disk that looks a bit to thick to fit in the enclosure on top of the two SODIMM.

What is the maximum hard disk thickness I can expect the 4x4-BOX 4800U to support?

I could not find that information anywhere.

Thanks,

JD

Drives 9.5 mm high became an unofficial standard for all except the largest-capacity laptop drives (usually having two platters inside); 12.5 mm-high drives, typically with three platters, are used for maximum capacity, but will not fit most laptop computers. Enterprise-class drives can have a height up to 15 mm. Seagate released a 7 mm drive aimed at entry level laptops and high end netbooks in December 2009. Western Digital released on April 23, 2013 a hard drive 5 mm in height specifically aimed at Ultrabooks.[25]
