Can I put two SSDs in a lenovo Ideapad 5 14ARE05?

I've read on the internet that two ssds cannot operate at the same time in this laptop, are the claims true or false?

Hi reknik,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

According to some sites, the IP 5-15ARE05 has 

 

Storage

Samsung PM991 MZALQ512HALU, 512 GB  

  • 1x M.2 2242 slot (occupied),
  • 1x M.2 2280 slot (free)

 

The documentation states:

M.2 2242 or 2280 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4

 

So it does look like the device has one M.2 2242 (22 width / 42 long) socket that is occupied by the current SSD and a M.2 2280 socket available for a second.

 

Regards

 

Voithos

Hi, for more detail, I opened a topic about this few days ago ;)

Just be carreful because in some 14ARE05, it is the 2280 slot that is free and in other the 2242. You should open your computer to check. For exemple in my topic wa can see a model with the 2242 slot free and I checked mine. The SSD installed is in the 2242 slot and the free slot is the 2280.

 

Sorry for my english
