Upgrade Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15.6 with ssd

Hi,

 

I am going to buy a used Lenovo IdeaPad Y700 15.6". The modelnr is 80NV00JWMX

 

It has the following spesifications: Intel Core i5-6300HQ, Nvidia GTX 960M 2GB, 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB HDD (maybe a 8 GB flash drive).

 

I have never owned a Lenovo, just several other brands. Will it be possible to upgrade this model with a SSD, and still have the 1 TB HDD? I am thinking of a M.2 Solid State Drive.  I am going to pick up the Lenovo later today. I just wanted to clarify this before I am picking it up.

It's exactly what I did with my 17" Y700, and can confirm everything works well. To install the M.2 SSD you'll need an extra screw, which is not provided: I used leftovers I had from previous laptops.

There has been a lot of talk on these forums regarding NVMe compatibility: some people reported problems with it but the general conclusion seems to be that it does work although it can ironically take longer to boot. I just use a SATA SSD so don't know have first-hand experience with any of this. Any SATA SSD should be fine.
