I recently benchmarked my E580 and was wondering if anyone can tell me what some good options are for upgrading my CPU and SSD. Currently has the i7-8550U and the SSD is a Lenovo make (LENSE20256GMSP34MEAT2TA 256GB).
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can't upgrade the CPU because it's soldered on to the system board.
For storage, you currently have an M.2 PCIe NVMe 256GB SSD. You can upgrade to a larger capacity drive, but you can't upgrade to Optane memory (it's not supported).
Here's a 500GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD you can upgrade to: https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-e580/CT13050429
You also have a 2.5" SATA slot available to add more storage to. Here's an example of a drive you can get: https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkpad-e580/CT11773008
Hope that helps.

Thanks! I asked here because when I called Lenovo to see about upgrading the processor, they gave me an intel number I could not find anywhere. I'll have a look at the additional SSD you mentioned.
