Lenovo 320-15IKB 81BG005BPH M.2 SSD Support

I have a Lenovo 320- 15IKB that I am curious if its capable of upgrading storage via M.2.  I know that there are only some variants for Lenovo 320 that are capable of having this storage. I verified that this specific model Lenovo 320-15IKB 81BG005BPH does have an m.2 slot, but is this for SATA or NVME PCIE?

The M.2 slot is PCIe. Lenovo's parts list for the model 81BG lists PCIe drives.

 

Hope that helps.

Re: Lenovo 320-15IKB 81BG005BPH M.2 SSD Support

Hi  alexzeus080,

 

In addition, checking with the hardware manual, SSD interface is SATA offered with the 2.5 SATA storage. On the parts lookup page shows optional m.2 PCIe  like PN 01FR508   Storage SSD S265 PCIe 128G  along with other substitutes.

 
So basically, depending on the board offered in the region if the m.2 slot for storage is available if not the optane slot that I am thinking.
 
This is the board for the Lenovo 320-15IKB 81BG005BPH PN 5B20P99233 MBL81BJI58250UV2GD4GWIN

I hope this helps answer your query.
