Thinkpad yoga 260 Upgrade SSD

2017-02-20, 13:52 PM

Hello everyone , as per subject i ' m thinking about upgrading the 256 GB SSD mounted on my TPY260 . 

Searching on the internet i found out that the best option for the upgrade would be the 500GB "Crucial" SSD .  Are there any other possibilieties ? For example is it possible to mount on the device a 1TB SSD ? 

Thank you in advance for the attention.

Have a good day.

Solved! See the solution

Hi Blackref,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

So as per the parts list, its possible to upgrade upto 1T,M.2,2280,PCIe3x4,SAMSG,STD  (00UP414)

Hello and thanks for the answer.

 

I just red the "part list" you linked .

I ' m wondering if the "thinkpad x260 yoga" is the same as the "thinkpad yoga 260" and also  the only place where i can read about a possible 1TB upgrade of the SSD for my model is the  "part list" you gave me , is strange there is nothing about it on the internet at all.  To solve any other doubt my product number is : "20FES1DK00"

 

Anyway i have some other questions : i opened the lower case of the laptop and i saw that on both the "ssd slot" and the "ram slot" there are black stickers : is it possible to upgrade these parts without voiding the warranty , or anyway which is the reason for the presence of those stickers?

Do you think is it also possible to upgrade  the RAM to 16GB DDR4 in my particular model  ("20FES1DK00") ?

 

Thank you very much in advance for the attention,

Blackref.

ThinkPad x260 and ThinkPad Yoga 260 are different devices.

The link above for Yoga 260 has error in the URL (file name includes "x260") as well as the title of that fru_bom file itself. But the fru_bom file MTs and content match the Yoga 260. Compare it with TP x260 parts list file:
https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x260_frubom_20160127.pdf

TP Yoga 260 supports both 1TB SSD, even PCIe 3x4, and 16GB DDR4 2133 SoDIMM parts. The question could be if your device has soldered RAM instead of the slot. But you confirmed there is a RAM slot.

Hi friend, 

 

As per the MTM which you posted your system is Thinkpad Yoga 260 & I don't think so there is Thinkpad x260 yoga.

Thinkpad x260 is different model all together.

And the reason your product is not listed in psref thats because MTM varies from region to region not all products are listed there. To add more upgradable parts are decided by Machine Type i.e., first 4 digit of the system in this case 20FE which is there and you can even upgrade the RAM upto 16GB max / 2133MHz DDR4, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket (03X7050) if not soldered to Motherboard.

Note-Some system Max - 8GB 2133MHz DDR4 (soldered to systemboard) WWAN models.

 

And also upgrading the RAM & SSD will not void the warranty as long as your not tampering/damaging the system while replacing.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Hello guys ,

thanks all of you for the very exhaustive answers .

Sorry but i used a wrong terminology before when i spoke about "ram slot" i intended just the ram "location" that was currently covered by the black stickers .

Removing the stickers i found out that the RAM is actually soldered .

 

I really love the device and the only thing that i don ' t like is this soldered ram , because it makes the device less "future proof" than  i intended it to be

 

I have to decide if to keep it for a while and maybe change it when i will really need to upgrade ssd and ram  ,or replace it whith the new upcoming model yoga 370 .

Thank you again for your answers guys .

 

Blackref.
