Re: ideapad 720s upgrade with hdd

Hi xyz2606,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Checking on the specification from the hardware manual and service module here do not offer available slot for an HDD due to its slim design. This however offer faster SSD up to 1TB capacity accomodated via M.2 interface.


There is also no optical drive for SATA connectors so best way to use the available HDD is as an external storage placed on a harddrive enclosure instead.


Hope this help answer your query.
