I understand as this model does not have USB 3.0 port.

As presently limited devices comes with USB 3.0 compatibility.

The problem is I found no devices come with USB 3.0 actually available for purchase. Can you tell me how to buy a B520 with USB 3.0?

Re: B520 Why no model has USB 3.0 right now?

Hi glavewu, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

A way to track one down is find the USB 3.0 model numbers in the Personal Systems Reference icbook lenovo.com/psref, then search for resellers with them available.

 

I have no idea why Lenovo is not currently selling them.

 

Hope this helps!

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Thx, but I can't simply compromise all other good stuff just for USB3.0... AU can not match QU in all the other ways~
