    For most laptops you don't want to go higher than 7mm or it most likely won't fit. Not a truism but a good rule of thumb.

    "an SSD’s Z-height is generally the same regardless of capacity"

    Except for the occasional very large capacity SSD that actually adds a "daughterboard" in order to
    potentially double the capacity. This nearly doubles the 'z'-height also. Not very common, but out
    there none the less.

    I am waiting for motherboards with integrated pcb ssd's. That will revolutionize manufacturing efficiency and reduce production costs. That would be cool.
