Re: Yoga 2 13 Internals

I can confirm that the Plextor 128 M2 does not work in the Yoga 2 13.  I tried it because the M550 was unavailable at the time, and it wouldn't show in BIOS, or anywhere else.

 

I switched to the 256GB M550 Crucial and all is well.

I thought so too. 

 

Can anyone explain why the Plextor 2880 pcie M.2 SSD doesn't work?  This would be good to know so we can all understand what to look for in the specs as new SSD models start to come out.

Re: Yoga 2 13 Internals

Hi there 

 

I would be interested in buying a Yoga 2 13  I5-4200U-1.8GHz with the following configuration: 4GB  DDR RAM , 500GB  HDD HYBRID + 8 GB SSD. For sure it isn't a recent model but to get the chance  for a SSD upgrade in M.2 SSD slot it quite nice.

 

Before the release of new models with SSD only, from the HW Maintenace manual, I understood  that past Yoga 2 13 versions had the following options as memory:

 

11 HDD, 5mm 500G, WD5000MPCK-24AWHT0 6G
11 HDD, 5mm 500G+16GB/8BG, Hybrid 5mm SSHD TBA N
11 HDD, 5mm 500G+16GB/8BG, WD5000M22K-24Z1LT0

 

The 1st option had the 500GB HDD with M2 SSD slot empty

The 3rd option (11 HDD, 5mm 500G+16GB/8BG, WD5000M22K-24Z1LT0)  had a hybrid HDD with a 8/16GB SSD cache with M2 SSD slot empy

 

Question

11 HDD, 5mm 500G+16GB/8BG, Hybrid 5mm SSHD TBA N

 

About the 2nd option, it  isn't clear to me whether  the 16/8 GB SSD  is fitted in the M2 SSD slot or the 16/8 GB SSD is integrated with the 500GB HDD with the M2 SSD slot empty

 

Is there anyone who can help me?

 

 

Thanking in advance 

Berserkir

Standard SATA cable for Yoga 2-13. Full description from cable (don't have a photo):

 

"ZIVYO SEAGATE HDD CABLE 

DC02001ZY00 rev 1.0 

SIMYA(XW)"

 

I'm not sure, probably Lenovo Part Number: 5C10G56490

Any news about the 7260 AC compatibility?
Hate the fact, that even the cheapest tp-link usb wifi adapter is faster, better than the lenovos original.

Hello ninten5,

 

On my Yoga 2 13 (I5 / 4Gb / 500Gb hybrid drive) I've successfully installed one Crucial M.2 SSD for the operating system and kept the 500 hybrid drive as data storage. So definitely is possible.

 

Cheers.
