Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15 question

2020-08-03, 12:13 PM

Hi good people.

 

I have just ordered IdeaPad 5 15 with Ryzen 4800u. It comes with a m.2 ssd and a harddrive.

 

First Hard Drive  -  1 TB Festplatte, 2,5", 7 mm, 5.400 U/min
Second Hard Drive  -  256 GB SSD, M.2 2242, PCIe, NVMe, TLC

 

I was wondering if I can change the m.2 and instead of m.2 2242 get a m.2 2280? Since the laptop seems to have amazing performance I would like to put inside a bigger 2280 m.2 1TB SSD. Does anybody know if that would be possible?

Hi LaMpiR,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

IdeaPad 5 15ARE05 general offering does includes:

 

● M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2 

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

 

This would definitely depends on your specific boards specially availability of space and screw hole for fastening it in place.

 

Best that you physically check yours and you can likewise share a snapshot of your board if needed.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

Hi LaMpiR,,

 

Have you checked your board first for availability of space for the 2280 length and screw hole?

 

I suggest you try checking first before any purchase.
