Y570 with SSD

I recently bought a Y570, I wanted one with SSD but it was out of stock. I just want to ask can I install a SSD on my Y570? I want to keep the HDD and install an extra SSD so what kind of SSD should I buy? What kind of SSD Lenovo uses? Thanks

Re: Y570 with SSD

There is no whitelist for SSDs, so you can install whichever brand you wish, as long as you have a spare hard drive bay.

Tap that kudos button if I helped ^^

Re: Y570 with SSD

What model SSD is established in Y570? Whether I can to buy SSD, establish it and adjust so that was loaded for 10 seconds?

Re: Y570 with SSD

I just ordered a Y570 08622JU model from newegg and I couldn't find out if this model has more than one drive bay. If there is could have my second drive be a ssd, and what kind of ssd drive would you reccomend? Thanks for any answers. Lenovo hasn't posted mush info about this model other than it's a Y570.

Y570 SATA Port

I bought a Y570 to use CAD and other graphics/processor intense programs.  Now I want to install a SSD (I don't have a rapid drive like certain Y570 models have).  I couldn't find it in the manual or online, so my question is if this laptop has a SATA II or SATA III port.  I'd like to use a SSD to its full potential, so I don't want to buy a SATA III capable SSD but limit its bandwidth on a SATA II port.
