SSD/HDD replacement on the new Thinkpad Yoga 12 2015

Hello everybody,


do you know if the internal HDD/SSD provided with the new Thinkpad Yoga 12 2015 can be replaced by myself?


And if this operation is possible, is it simple to proceed ?

I used to replace HDD by SSD on my MacBook pro laptops, it is very simple. 


As the internal HDD and SSD provided are not the best ones (the Thinkpad SSD are considered as to be slow), i want to replace the HDD/SSD by a Samsung 840 Pro.


Thanks a lot for your reply

The base spec and hardware maintenance manual should help with this.

Please note that neither the 2.5 inch HDD/SSD or m.2 SSD are listed as self-service CRU (customer replaceable unit) or optional-service CRU so you may face warranty issues if you attempt this yourself.
