Re: T450 SSD upgrade

T450 does not support NVMe drives, only 2.5in SATA SSD drives. "Best" would be something like Samsung 860 Pro, however best Price-Performance would be something like Samsung 860 Evo. U can try to find original Lenovo RAM 8GB = FRU 03X6657 / MPN 0B47381. Or for example Crucial RAM (8GB=CT102464BF160B). Used RAM can be used as well, will be quite cheaper probably.

Not only 2.5" drives.  The T450 can also support a 2242 m.2 SATA (not PCIe/NVMe) SSD in the WWAN slot if it's not occupied by a WWAN card.
