Hi. Im wondering if you happen to know the compatibility of M.2 2280 SSD's with a lenovo yoga 2 13 (not pro)?
I've heard the crucial 240gb one works, but I see a Samsung one that has much better benchmark stats and is also cheaper, and am wondering if my Yoga is limited in any way that would not accomodate the Samsung drive.
Beau L.
Do you have a link to the laptop?
I can check real quick.
I agree.
Samsung is better.
My laptop model is 20344.
i5 4200U 1.6 ghz (2.3 max), 4gb ram, 500gb HDD+16gb micro solid state.
Beau L.
There is no ssd already installed?
Its a laptop as well?
No, besides the micro one that is somewhere connected in sync with the regular Hdd. And it is a laptop, yes.
Beau L.
And the regular hdd is sata?
Indeed.
Beau L.
As long as the ssd is a sata connection it will fit just fine.
Just make sure it doesn;t say pcie on it.
The lenovo people told me that the max capacity for upgrading a drive in my computer is 256 gb, but had nothing to say about max read/write speeds, and stuff like that. Is there a limit to compatibility there or will any SSD that fits the connector and is less than 256gb work?
Beau L.
Yes.
Any with the connector and is less than 256.
Its weird that they mentioned it cant go over that?
Never heard of a hard drive limit before.
In a laptop without user-upgradeable RAM, its not surprising. Just doing what I can to make it better since I was dumb and didnt buy the Pro version.
Thanks for your help though,
Beau L.
You are welcome!
