new owner of Ideapad 120S

2017-11-25, 18:31 PM

I am a new owner of a Ideapad 120S purchased yesterday on Black Friday.

I have mostly owned Dell laptops previously.

 

I am guessing that when I power the laptop the first thing I need to do is create a backup on a USB flash drive.

 

Any gotchas I should know about?

Yep, backing up is a good practice.  

 

Other than that, you should be good to go.  Enjoy your new machine!

Considering picking up a 120s can get a very good deal on a 32gb version, Was wondering if a ssd drive can be added. See it was possible on the 110

If it's a 32GB eMMC model, then it will be soldered on to the system board.  But if the model has a PCIe or SATA hard drive, then yes, it can be upgraded.

I have seen that on older models with emmc drive, there was an available m.2 slot on the mb where you could put in an m.2 drive. Can you do that in the ideapad 120s? Thank you.
