Hi Nati_ch,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Do not buy an SSD drive, it does not have any m.2 connector port.


I checked on the motherboard image for your machine and its barren (taken from parts look up). 


System board Part Number 5B20P23795 MB 3N 81A5 N4200 WIN UMA R4G32G (with integrated 32 GB emmc storage soldered). 




Similar to this discussion, seems that those with EMMC soldered drives have a different board than those that offer m.2 SSD SATA slot variants of the Ideapad 120s. There is no upgrade option available internally for this design so external storage may be an option.


I hope this helps answer your query.
