Lenovo E130 - 7mm drive

I've got a Lenovo E130. It's just out of warranty and it's Hitachi hard drive is failing. I want to replace with an SSD, but I'm advised that I need a 7mm model, as opposed to the "standard" 9.5mm. I can't see that measurement on any specs, has anyone fitted an SSD to a Lenovo E130; or come across a Crucial SSD that's 7mm deep?

 

Thanks;

M500 and M550 are both 7mm height drives however I didn't have to fit them in 7mm bays yet ;-)

5mm height M550s should be available soon I guess.
