Add a second ssd to x1 Carbon 5th generation?

2017-11-26, 17:37 PM

I am purchasing an x1 carbon 5th generation with a 1 TB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe.

I am wondering if it is possible to install a second ssd of whatever format? I will have an empty wwan slot.

Right now I am using an x220 that has 1Tb SSD and 1Tb msata ssd. It would be great if something similar were possible with the x1 carbon.

Thanks for your assistance!

Solved! See the solution

I haven't seen any confirmation that Lenovo allows the use of an SSD in the WWAN slot on the 5th gen X1 Carbon, so I would say that it probably wouldn't work.  You can try though. 


And there's only one M.2 slot, so I don't think you can add an extra SSD.

I believe that it does not work
