need Intel Turbo Memory SLOT details



There are two mini pci-e slots in Lenovo R500. One obtained by Wi-Fi adapter, second - for Intel Turbo Memory.

Can i use second slot as full compatible mini pci-e slot or its only for intel turbo memory?


One more question:


For example i want to install mini pci-e flash drive (SSD) to  Intel Turbo Memory slot.

welcome to the forum!


the R500's BIOS isn't set up to accept anything except WWAN or turbo memory in that slot.   on top of that, the card you've linked is 19.2mm too long to fit.   the SSDs in the asus netbooks are 70mm long where the standard mini PCI-e card is 50.8mm.
