Y2P uses mSATA, not M.2 interface. Yoga 2 (non pro) uses M.2.

Unless you bought your Y2P in China (Chinese BIOS blacklists instllation of other SSds) you can install any mSATA drive.
There's threads in this forum with all the info how to do it, and how to copy your existing SSD to the new one.

Samsung EVO is quite popular model, and has mSATA version up to 1 TB.
