Re: P50 Hard disk drive cable

2016-06-02, 15:43 PM

Hello, I was eyeing this laptop since its announcement in August15 and could finally buy one in a very good deal (64GB ECC, Xeon and 4K). However the disk space configuration is: 512GB(2 x 256GB) PCIe SSD + 500GB 7200RPM HDD. Would be greatful if you could tell me what are my best options to increase this space to a total of 2 TB with maximum amount of SSD. I need this configuration for my work. I am an Oracle consultant and need to create my lab on this laptop and hard isk is an impmortant factor in it.

Looking forward to benefit from immense knowledge of this community.

 

cheers..

Hi there,

 

The P50 (not the s version) can support 3 drives (2 x m.2 and 1 X 3.5").  The cable kit needed for a system that doesn't include a 3.5" native is the 4XB0L63274 Thinkpad Mobile Workstation Storage Kit - for some reason I can't find it on the PSREF sheets anymore, but it's available through several venues online.  If you wanted to add another m.2 drive you'll have to add a 4XB0L78233 tray kit, also readily available, but shouldn't have any problems finding it.

 

Hope this helps!

Sorry ek365, but I'm looking at an opened-up P50 right now.  There's no way a 3.5" drive will fit in there.  2.5", certainly.  3.5", no way.

I think the poster meant a 2.5" laptop drive, not a 3.5" desktop drive.

ek365 just made a typo in his post.  Sorry, but you won't find a laptop designed to use 3.5" drives.  I'm sure if you just purchased your P50 there's a good chance that Lenovo will let you return it.
