X1 Carbon 6th Gen WIfi card upgradeability?

X1 Carbon 6th gen comes with Intel 8265 across all models with no other options upon configuration. But, I am wondering whether the WIFI card can be upgraded to something newer (Intel 9650 in particular).


Anyone in the forum who already replaced the WIFI card in X1 Carbon 6th gen??

Lenovo W530, i7-3740QM, Quadro k1000m, 512GB Crucial MX100 SATA SSD, 64GB Samsung mSATA SSD, 12GB 1600MHZ RAM

The answer is YES! and also not only intel wifi card!

In fact, This is one of the awesome priviliges of X1 against other brands (incl. MacBook Pro)

I'm running an Intel 9260 (FRU 01AX769) in one of mine.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
