L580 Dual Drives

I was thinking about buying a L580 and was wondering if I can add a SSD to the hard drive.  From what I've read, I can do this using a PCIe 2242 drive to the WWAN/SSD slot, but I'd like to know before I spend the money.  Thanks for any help.

Re: L580 Dual Drives

Hello and welcome,

 

The base spec looks promising:

 

http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20L580/ThinkPad_L580_Platform_Specificatio...

 

Some: 128GB M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s,
in WWAN slot as 2nd Storage, mutually exclusive with WWAN

 

Note that it has to be a 2242 PCIe/NVMe m.2 SSD and those are scarce as hen's teeth lately.  The go-to Tosh RC100 doesn't seem to be available.  There may be other options out there.  The 128GB mentioned is the size that Lenovo provides.  It's not a limitation to what a user could install, if they can find an appropriate part.

 

Z.
