TP YOGA 12: Fit mSATA in M.2 slot w/adapter

2015-04-06, 11:28 AM

I wonder if anybody has experience on fitting an mSATA SSD into the M.2 slot with an adapter, or if you could point me towards more information on the subject?

 

I upgraded from an X220T to the 2015 YOGA 12 and was left with an mSATA SSD. It's 256GB which is why I find it a good idea to try an accommodate it inside the YOGA instead of going through the hassle of selling it first and then ordering a compatible M.2 SSD drive.

 

All info is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

My guess is this won't work, since mSATA cards are considerably wider than m.2 - never mind any signal compatibility issues.   I did find one example of an adapter, but I don't know how you'd fit it in your laptop.  Or if it works... Links below.

After reading your question, I actually took the cover off my ThinkPad Yoga 12 to see if this is possible.  My conclusion is that there is no possible way that a mSATA SSD could fit into the M.2 slot of ThinkPad Yoga 12, even if some converter exists.  There simply isn't enough room in the area of the M.2 slot to fit the larger mSATA drive.

Thanks to both of you for the clear answers! I think I'll try selling my 256GB mSATA SSD and invest in an M.2 drive.
