I suppose you could install an mSATA SSD into the 2.5" SATA space with something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Micro-SATA-Cables-MSATA-ADPT-Adapter/dp/B004YKJ5TE
And while there appear to be mSATA-to-m.2 adapters, like this: https://www.amazon.com/mSATA-Mini-PCI-Adapter-Converter/dp/B00OQ1Y5UA, I think that the extra width of the mSATA wouldn't work in either of the m.2 slots without impinging on something.
(Disclaimer: I don't have a P50. Just going by what I see in the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/p50_hmm_en_sp40j71944_01.pdf)

I also do not have a P50. I agree that the mSATA to M.2 adapter looks too wide. As far as the 2.5" adapter,I don't see a good way to hold the drive in place. It wouldn't sit in the caddy.

Good point on that first adapter possibly flopping around.
This one might do the trick for the 2.5" bay: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186212

I would have a question about that one also. The maximum thickness in the bay is 7mm. I don't see where the thickness is specified on the adapter.

No thickness info that I see at the manufacturer's site, either: http://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=613&search=SD-ADA40077
Agree that, by the images, it looks too thick.
But, maybe this one: https://www.amazon.com/MSATA-SSD-Converter-2-5-Inch/dp/B00GGLOENQ

9.5mm doesn't fit without some trimming of plastic. Also overheating could be a problem.
