Some Questions about ThinkPad E480

(edited, I meant the E480 and not the T480)

 

Hello,

 

I am looking at a Lenovo ThinkPad E480 and I have some questions about it.

 

(1) Are there two Memory Slots on the Motherboard ? Can I have an 8GB + 8GB (total 16GB) configuration ?

 

(2) Does the M.2 interface support SATA3 and PCIe NVMe both ?

 

(3) Does the 2.5" interface support SATA3 ? 

 

(4) If I order from Lenovo Canada Do I have to pay customs/duty fee ?

 

Many Thanks

Re: Some Questions about ThinkPad T480

Hello and welcome,

 

You've posted in a "T" forum. Your subject mentions a T480 but your post body says E480.

 

Please clarify which model you're interested in.

Re: Some Questions about ThinkPad E480

So ALL E480's have a 2.5" SATA3 interface AND an M.2 PCIe NVMe interface...

 

I am asking this because I am intending to buy the E480 with a 500GB HDD...and then swap the HDD with a 2.5" SATA3 SSD and also addin another M.2 PCIe SSD....

 

So I want to upgrade the laptop so that I have a 2.5" + M.2 side by side....do ALL E480's have two interfaces(2.5"+M.2) or only select models have it ?
