I have a Lenovo X301, which were all SSD drive systems.
I was looking at the Intel Turbo Memory card as their is a free slot for one next to the WWAN card, and I have noticed that the Support on Lenovo :: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67820 state that the X300 and X301 are supported for the Turbo Memory (no X300 or X301 came with anything other than a Solid State Disk) though in notes it says;
Seems to conflict, as the X301 is supported but the X301 only has an SSD option.
So the question is can I use Intel Turbo Memory, and if so why do Lenovo advise against it in an SSD system.

there is no point installing the turbo memory if you already have the ssd. it is not going to produce any speed improvement.
I had tried to install the turbo memory in my X301 with the ssd, i didn't get any error as such, but it also didn't get any performance improvements either.
Lenovo advise against it due to the fact that it may produce hardware conflicts in certain circumstances.
