Lenovo ThinkPad T460s Hard Drive question

2020-10-12, 16:06 PM

Hello... Correct me if I'm wrong but this laptop only uses those M.2 SATA NGFF drives, yes? So, when they stop making these drives then what? From my understanding the manufacturers is fading them out, so what is one to do when they do? These are fairly new systems, thanks 

 

 

Solved! See the solution

No, not according to the spec.

Some:M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s (e.g. xxxG SSD)

Some:M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s (e.g. xxxG SSD PCIe

No. It means that your laptop has either M.2 SATA or M.2 PCIe NVMe.

... or yes... The m.2 slot in a T460s will support either an NVMe or SATA drive.
