Lenovo Y500 SSD and Network adapter questions

2017-06-10, 15:40 PM

I have a Lenovo Y500 with the following specs: i7-3630QM, 8GB RAM, GT 650M SLI, 1TB HDD, AR5B225 Network adapter.
I have 3 questions:

1. Will this SSD work in the mSATA slot on the Lenovo Y500?
850 EVO Series MZ-M5E250BW 250GB

2. As I have the SLI variant of the laptop, there's obviously a graphics card in my "ultrabay". Can I fit a 2,5" SSD in that ultrabay or would i need to buy a totally different ultrabay that was specifically meant to hold an SSD? If so, where can i find that part?

3. With the current AR5B225 network adapter (802.11N) i only get around 9.5 megabyte per second or 75ish megabit per second. Is there any replacement network adapter i could buy with 802.11AC 5GHz? Preferably capable of actual (not theoretical) throughput of about 500 megabit per second? As that's what my accesspoints are capable of.
