Need SSD advise for my new P50

2016-06-02, 9:51 AM

Hi,

I am about to buy a new P50 for work. (working as a software engineer coding and running WM's on my ThinkPad).

I want to run SSD's on both the "boot/OS" disc and my extra disc where I run my WMs from.  

 

I am thinking about the following configuration;

 

1st Harddrive (Boot)  - 512GB SSD PCIe-NVMe

2nd Harddrive - 1Tb SSD PCIe-NVMe

 

Can this be done? Can I order this from the Lenovo web site? Looks like there is no option to switch the standard OS disc?

Solved! See the solution

You can buy a second SSD and install in your laptop if you order it with only one SSD. There are two slots for fast SSDs. I would have chosen 1 TB configuration on the website, and move it to the second slot when installing the other 512 GB SSD in the first slot to have the operating system installed in the first one.

 

You will need to buy 4XB0K59917 aswell, a M.2 SSD tray. It costs 81 kronor and can be ordered at the same time as the computer. Just search for it under Produkter->Tillbehör. The tray can be ordered from swedish sites aswell if you want Posten to deliver it instead of UPS.
