welcome to the community!
i don't believe there's any size constraint on the mSATA connection in your pc. the only constraints are the SSD sizes available, and your wallet.
i've not seen one larger than 256gb yet and that's what i've got in one of my machines. very happy with it.

I've installed a Samsung PM830 128GB mSATA SSD on my Y580.
The only thing is you will need a screw (1 or 2, I forgot) to keep the SSD down and Lenovo didn't provide them (at least mine didn't)

One of the videos on youtube shows free PCIE slots on the back of the Laptop other than the mSATA slot. It's in german though.. would it be possible to add another mSATA on that slot and use 2 mSATA drives....
Please overlook my ignorance ...
also mushkin and crucial both now have 512GB mSATA drives..... Cheers...none of them come with screws though..
