I have a Yoga 300 11iby.
I would like to speed it up by replacing the HDD with an SDD, I've successfully accomplished the same operation with Dell mini towers and Sony laptops. I plan to use a Crucial 250GB drive.
I have 2 questions
1) has anybody accomplished this or know of any reason it shouldn't work.
2) Although I've removed the scews from the base I've not managed to remove the base. I don't want to force anything, so has anybody any idess.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Could you tell us what is the state of your SSD update project? I'm interested in also, because 32GB seems to to be few for WIN 10 upgrade. I tried to use external drive also, but I always rceived something similar message: "WIN 10 require additonal 10GB free space on C: drive".
Which kind of SSD did you order?
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
