E130 and mSATA drives

Hello,

 

I would like to know whether the ThinkPad Edge E130 supports mSATA drives or not? Model number is 3358-37G.

 

Thanks in advance.

According to Lenovo documentation, the E130 does support mSATA.

Re: E130 and mSATA drives

Thanks for the quick answer.

 

Here are my findings:

Yes, I read the documentation - and the spare part list too (only 16GB msata cache mentioned). But those are not so exact. Actually, the doc says that the msata is for cache function only, and of course on the next sentence they ask the users not to replace the msata drive because he/she will lose the cache functionality (surely) - so it seems some E130 models may support some kind of msata drives. But the question is, are there any limitation regarding the mPCIe port in my model (3358-37G)?

 

Maybe this is hair splitting, but I cannot find a store where I can try out an msata dirve, so I want to be sure before I buy.

 

Any opinion (maybe from Lenovo)?

 

Thanks

Re: E130 and mSATA drives

if they can use mSATA then there is no limitation, Lenovo only has specific mSATA capacities, which is available as a cache only.
