Larger SSD on X1 possible?

2012-03-11, 19:39 PM

When I got my i7 X1 it had the 160 Gb SSD option. Is it possible to upgrade to a larger SSD? Can't find any info on this. If not, is there any indications on when Lenovo may be offering such a larger SSD upgrade?

 

Or should I simply consider to put in a larger, non-SSD?

you can get larger hdd as long as its 7 mm thick 2.5 inch, currently Lenovo don't offer anything larger then what you got for SSD. So your only option is to go aftermarket.

Alternatively you can get the mSATA SSD and use the normal hdd slot for a larger platter drive, this will allow you to solve the capacity issue and still retain a fast application response and bootup time.

You could also put in a larger 3rd party SSD.

 

Intel 520 series is 7mm (when you remove the spacer) and offer 180GB, 240GB and 480GB in SATA-3 interface.

| X220 i7-2620M | 12.5" HD IPS | Intel 180GB SSD | Crucial 480GB mSATA SSD | 8GB DDR3 | Intel 7260 AC |
| X260 i7-6600U | 12.5" FHD IPS | Samsung 860Pro 512GB SSD | 16GB DDR4 | Intel 8260 AC |

Thank you for your response! 

 

I think I will stick to original Lenovo parts to comply with warranty and service agreement. Sounds good that both booting and response will not be affected. But before I make the plunge; will the hybrid disk affect battery usage much?

combining mSATA and platter hdd will affect battery life, if both are activated at the same time.

Where do I stick in an mSATA SDD? Which port? The mini PCIe?

the full size mPCIe slot is the mSATA slot. If you don't have the WWAN option installed, then you can use the mSATA storage.
