(edited, I meant the E480 and not the T480)
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 ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Your first three questions are answered in the link to PSREF that x220forme provided.
As for Q4, the prices on Lenovo Canada's site are in CAD and include all shipping/duty/taxes/brokerage. While your ThinkPad will likely ship from China, there will be no pricing "surprises" when it arrives at your door.

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 ?
