Ideapad 320 - 15IKB M.2 SSD support ?

I recently bought a Lenovo ideapad 320 ( full name in the subject) but it was without SSD. I want to ask are there any M.2 or PCIE slots on the board for a SSD ?

Your machine has only HDD slot, which can hold a HDD spinner or 2.5 inch SSD.

HMM, page 72, item 14 describes this slot.

Some newer models do have a M.2 slot. This is not reflected in the hardware maintenance manual yet.

See post below.

Hi TheOldMan1989,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

On a similar discussion here there are some variants of Ideapad 320-IKB that supports m.2 SSD PCIe storage slot as others do not.

 

Ideally if you can share the machine number (MTM) from the sticker (it may appear as 81BG006BIV or check it here).

 

Regards

No, your specific model does not have a M.2 slot for SSDs on the motherboard.

So can I use SATA III SSD, as replacement of my HDD? or there is another option?

Besides SATA, there is no other option, no. Replace your HDD with an SSD.
