WWAN Antennas - x250, x260, x270

Hi, I am looking to buy either an x250/60/70 used off ebay and was wondering if they are all WWAN ready in that they all come with the WWAN antennas already installed even if they haven't been optioned with the WWAN module.

 

I have a WWAN module from another machine I believe will be compatible with all of these so am hoping I can install it without needing to install the antennas into the display housing also. If someone can confirm if they have antennas installed by default or not I would appreciate it.

 

Thanks

Hi shawben,

 

WWAN is optional and not available as default for these models. Take X250 as example, the official Platform Spec shows it as optional items as well.

Not all wwan modems are compatible with all laptops listed.

Thanks for the replies, they are fair points to consider but they don't really ansswer my question. My question is if the these laptops have the WWAN antennas installed by default (WWAN ready) even if they are not ordered with a WWAN module?

 

Thanks

Re: WWAN Antennas - x250, x260, x270

There were / are several configurations regarding the wwan feature:
- both wwan antennas and modem are absent
- the wwan antennas are installed, the wwan modem is absent
- both parts are installed

x260 and x270 have additional dependency:
- x260 - wwan feature is mutually exclusive with WiGig
- x270 - wwan feature is mutually exclusive with WiGig feature and the 2nd SSD

The wwan antennas is a part for installation by Lenovo technician only, though, it's not very difficult task to do.
