X1 Carbon Gen 4 SSD

Hi, 

 

I have read that all the carbons after the gen 2 use an M2.ssd. Is there anything to stop you from changing or swapping the ssd around. Are there any videos or pictures online that might show me where the drive is located. 

 

Is there anything that would stop me from buying the model with the smallest and cheapset M2 ssd and then later putting in something newer?

 

Thanks

Sorry, perhaps I can rephrase this a little clearer. Can I assume that all the thinkpad carbon gen 4s will support any NVMe M2 SSD that I buy?

I don't think you can assume that.   M.2 cards have different physical dimensions (as I understand), and can be one sided or two sided. 

 

The one sided samsung pro 950 will fit.  Just go for that , if you have the cash.   If not, you should find one you like, post the model here and ask if it will fit.
