Just bought the Ideapad, and am curious about a HDD upgrade to a 7200. Can I change the HDD myself? I haven't been able to find any info on the Lenovo site, forums, or elsewhere. Thanks for any help

Hi diplomat ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Recommended harddrive as provided in the FRU list (item 13 page 95) are 5400 rpm .
Similarly newer systems nowadays may be able to use 7200 rpm as integrated technogy is set to a more faster storage device like Hybrid SSHD amongs the spinning harddrive vesus SSD with no movable parts similar to this case .
Offered SSHD from the hardware manual list would still run faster than the 7200 as a better upgrade even if rpm is 5400 taking note of different mediums SSHD can use.
Hope this help answer your query.
