Using my 730s drive in another Lenovo laptop

2021-06-20, 2:35 AM

Hey Folks,


My backpack fell out of my car and I drove over it, with my IdeaPad 730 in it.  It still works (I'm surprised!), but it's twisted and bent and there are some issues with the keyboard and touchpad.  I have all of my files and software on it, and it will be a really big pain in the "you know what" to get a new laptop and copy/reinstall everything.


I considered getting the same laptop and just moving the SSD over, but this model is discontinued.


The IdeaPad Slim 7 comes up as the replacement.




- Will there be issue if I put the 730 driver (M.2 SSD) in the Slim 7 (assuming it's also M.2 form factor)?

- Should I consider something else?  X1?


Appreciate your thoughts and guidance.

Welcome to the Community Forums @ConradMcL 


We can try to check these two specifically if you can provide the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help in specifying your machine variant. This can also be helpful in identifying the specifications of these two different machines. One MTM from 730S and one from IdeaPad Slim 7.


Let us know when convenient.
