Maybe I'm just missing something here but if I'm replacing, say, a laptop's hard drive with an SSD, The first instruction says to "Connect your new SSD to the system. . ." I find unclear. What system? Are we talking about removing the drive from the laptop and connecting it to something - system - or does the drive remain in the laptop and the new SSD connects to what? Granted, once I order and receive the kit, it will probably be self evident but just would like to know. And, maybe others might be more inclined to give it a try.

In a laptop specifically, assuming your system does not have multiple internal SATA ports, you will need to use a SATA-to-USB connector to connect the new drive externally while the original drive stays internal (you can reverse the locations, but there's rarely a need for this). Our laptop install kits include a cable cable for this, but any other vendor's SATA-to-USB adapter or USB enclosure will work as well.
