    I installed the 840 Pro SSD on my Dell XPS 8500 and the difference is very noticeable. I would like now to install msata version of the 840 on my Dell Inspiron laptop but cannot find it anywhere for purchase online. Do you know if the msata version of the 840 Pro even exist? And if it does what the model.part number is? By the way I also tried searching for PM840 with no luck.
