Solid state ?
Nice idea. Didn't know they exist in 1.8"
The box of the h340 is about 2 mm thicker to hold the 40 GB hard drive
(double platter). So you'll certainly have to pay attention about the
physical dimensions of the hard disk.
There should be no other limitation (as long as you stand below 128 GB, that is)
