ThinkCentre M715 Tiny SSD

What are the specs for the SSD socket on an M715 Tiny. Here https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkCentre/ThinkCentre%20M715%20Tiny%20(2nd%20Gen)/M715q%2... is says

"Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4*, 32Gb/s * 128GB SSD M.2 (2242) PCIe NVMe only supports PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s"

Why does the line start with "Some"?

Why does it single out a 2242 does this mean it can't fit a 2260 or 2280 dimension SSD?

Ideally I want to put in a Samsung 970 PRO PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 which is 2280  of course is M keyed.

 

Can't believe a computer manaufacturer writes specs that bad!

It helps to show that line in context.  It says "some", because it all depends on how the system was optioned:  Some will have a 2.5" HDD, some a 2.5" SSD, and some a M.2 SSD (or possibly a combination of a 2.5" drive and a M.2 SSD.)

 

Only the 128GB M.2 SSD is specified at 2242 size (and PCIe x2, 16 Gb), the other M.2 SSDs are specified at PCIe x4, 32 Gb, no specific length.  Crucial lists a 2280 M.2 as a guaranteed compatible upgrade for this specific system.  And Samsung is the most popular manufacturer for after-market M.2 PCIe SSDs for ThinkCentres.
