Ideapad 100s 14IBR Hard Drive Upgrade

2017-03-28, 16:48 PM

So, I do not know much about laptops or PCs, but I just recently purchased a 2TB hard drive for my PS4 to upgrade the memory from the old one. So now, I just have an old 500GB 2.5" hard drive laying around, and I am wondering if I can put it in my laptop, rather than just collecting dust.

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi acoen2700 , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

As per hardware specifications (page 26) :

Storage devices :

• eMMC: 32 GB / 64 GB  (embedded card (eMMC) on the motherboard)
• SSD: 128 GB / 256 GB (on an M.2 slot)

 

No available option for a SATA HDD internally here other than externally enclose it.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Just wondering if that M2 slot supports SSDs with a PCIe interface, or is it SATA-III only...?

 

As far as I can tell the interface is not mentioned in the hardware specification, but then I could only find the platform specification. My model is the 100S-14IBR (80R9).  I've had a look and the slot would certainly accomodate either interface: the M2 PCIe SSD interface doesn't have the second notch that a SATA-III SSD has, and neither does the port have the second "key".

 

For further context:

 

"M.2 is the physical form factor.SATA and PCIe refer to the storage interface, with the primary difference being performance and the protocol (language) spoken by the M.2 SSD. The M.2 specification was designed to accommodate both a SATA and PCIe interface for SSDs.M.2 SATA SSDs will use the same controller currently available on typical 2.5 in SATA SSDs.M.2 PCIe SSDs will use a controller specifically designed to support the PCIe protocol. An M.2 SSD can support only one protocol, but some systems have M.2 sockets that can support either SATA or PCIe." - Kingston M2 FAQ
