I have the Y700 touch 15 isk with a single wd 1tb hardrive.
I have read all of the ssd threads on here , still a little confused about the connectivity..
Is the m.2 port a sata 3 , sata6 or a PCIe?.
If it's a PCIe can I used a PCIe x4 ssd?
Thanks ahead of time.

My M.2 is a LITEON CV1-8B512 running at SATA/600, so indeed SATA III. I personally don't have any pcie M.2 devices to test sadly.
