Just purchased a Thinkpad Yoga 14 and I'm wondering if anyone has installed a SSD and whether installing a SSD would all overall speed to the Yoga 14. I've installed SSDs in my older Thinkpads and noted significant improvement, but I'm not familiar enough with the Yoga to know for sure if it would be worth it. Any opinions would be appreciated.

I dug a bit on the interwebs and noticed an article at the MobileTechReview that is probably the answer to what you're looking for.
Like you, the authors of that review had a Yoga 14 and wanted to upgrade the SSD. Comes out to by ~25% difference in PCMark 7 score benchmore. I don't know what kinds of tests actually matter in your case but is probably worth reading. It compares to a few more laptops, here is a partial list:.
