So I'm finally looking to upgrade my X220... Honestly nothing wrong with it still runs great, i just can't stand the low screen resolution anymore.
So I'm wondering if anyone knows if the X260 has an internal M2 ssd slot. If i get one I'd like to get one with the standard hard drive to save cost, then get an internal M2 ssd for OS/Apps drive.
I'm not finding much info about it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x260_hmm_en_sp40j72016_01.pdf
only shows a standard style drive. No indication of an SSD-compatible m.2 slot.
Hope this helps clarify a bit.

At least one person has upgraded their x220 to 1080p IPS. http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=106919&start=30

sarbin is this website incorrect?
clearly names the slot. I am looking for compatibility, Are they mistaken?

If you're referring to this:
"The laptop also has a spare M.2 NGFF SSD slot."
That's a reference the available WWAN slot. Some models can support a WWAN card or SSD in that slot but that does not seem to be the case for the X260.

I purchased a X260 about 2 weeks ago, with the intent of installing a second SSD in that slot only to find out that the slot has changed from previous models. I'm not sure, but that slot appears to be a m2. NGFF 2280 slot? But I can't find any storage options that will fit. If someone does I'd love to know what works.

I've noticed that recently Lenovo have started offering what they say is NVMe as an option on the X260 ordering page:
From other sites (http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/x260-and-nvme.789006/page-4 , https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/409yx5/how_will_the_x260_have_support_for_pcie_ssds/ etc) it seems this is a M2.2242 PCIe SSD, in which case presumably the 2.5" SATA bay is still free.
https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x260_hmm_en_sp40j72016_01.pdf suggests there's just the one slot (plus the one for the Wifi/WiGig card), however the Lenovo online config page allows you can order this drive with either Huawei or Sierra Wireless mobile broadband, which I think must be a mistake.
@mlbriggs241: it sounds to me like you might be able to find a 256GB Toshiba card to fit, though presumably you'll need to buy a card through Lenovo for it to be recognised by the BIOS.
If you don't need WWLAN then a 256GB boot/apps disk with 1-2TB SATA data SSD sounds quite a nice X260 combination

I too am curious about this. No one seems to have a definite answer as to whether the additional m.2 LTE slot will support a half height SSD. Lisa from MobileTechReview mentions this.
