A friend of mine just got an ASUS X550JK-DH71 Laptop and is interested in installing an SSD to replace the 1TB 5400 spinner.

This one

I have done this with my HP Lappy, but never with an ASUS lappy.

Any issues we should be aware?
Anybody know if the SATA port is SATA ll or SATA lll? My research does not reveal this info.
