Yoga 730 - 13iwl ssd upgrade

2020-09-22, 9:03 AM

Hello,

 

I was wondering if there's a capacity limit to the SSD in this laptop. The hardware maintenance manual states 128, 256, 512 Gb but I would like to know if it's possible to put more capacity in there. And does anyone know the dimension limits of the SSD?

 

thanks in advance!

Hi stokki,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

OEM offering is up to 1 TB as shown here under Commodity list.

 

M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4, 22 x 80

 

Other resellers like Crucial offers up to 2TB but OEM guarantee is 1TB which I think should be enough.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi stokki,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The Yoga 730 - 13 IWL has these Storage Specifications:

 

  • M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4

 

Looking at the Support page, you can find the dimensions of the M.2 SSD.  Just plot in the serial number of your device. Head to Parts and check "Solid State Drive" in the Commodity List of the "As Built" section.  I do believe it is the M.2 2280 (biggest of the three m.2 dimensions).

 

When it comes to the amount, I don't put much faith in limitations of M.2 SSD's. These have 3 dimensions, and when you have space for the largest one (2280), you should be able to fit any M.2 2280 sized SSD into that slot. If a computer (motherboard) can support 512GB, then it should definitely be able to support even more. Personally I think these limitations are set just because that is what the device has been "tested" with.
