Yoga 13 mSata storage limit?

2012-10-31, 18:34 PM

Hi,

 

Does anyone know if there is a storage limit for mSata drives in the Yoga 13?  There is a 128GB mSata drive in one of my bays but there is also an empty bay.  I'm sure the second bay will accomodate another 128GB drive but what about a 256GB?  Wondering if there is a capacity limit per slot, or overall.  Thanks.

Lenovo will be shipping a 256GB version of the Yoga 13 soon so the machine will definitely support a 256GB drive. Not sure if anyone has confirmed that the second slot also supports another 256GB drive.

Can you confirm that you now have 8GB memory and 128+256 ssd for a total of 384GB? What brand ssd did you use? I want to do the same but have received different info from each ssd manufacturer on feasability. Thanks in advance!

I'm sure no intentional limit about that however 128GB+256GB is not a shipping configuration, you can have a try. Personally speaking, I think you have 98% chance depend on the quality of your 256GB SSD (not an official answer).

does adding a second hard drive void the warranty since the back of it has to be taken off?  Just want to make sure before adding a second 256GB.

Thanks for the quick reply but can you just confirm for me the following: I have the Yoga 13 with 4gb memory &128gb sdd. Can I upgrade to 8gb memory and add an additional 256gb sdd to my 128gb sdd, rather than replace my existing 128gb sdd?

Not sure about the warranty, service center may answer this question.

I was talking about an additional 256GB SSD. Upgrade to 8gb memory also is supported, just potential compatible issue.
