The IO ports on the two sides have been well protected.
The dual PDDR4 slots design is reserved for a piece of 8GB DDR4 RAM. We suggest that the user add an extra 8GB DDR4 RAM or put two 16GB DDR4.
One is the M.2 SSD and its specification is 2240. Therefore, the user must replace the old SSD with a new one which has the same specification as the old once they need to change.
The other is the 2.5-inch HDD. The advantage of HDD is its large capacity, data stabilization and cheap price. The HDD is protected by ThinkPad’s own APS. In terms of datum foundation, the laptop has done a good job.

Hello, can i put in 512G M.2 SSD?
Dear Kylie, Thank you for your guide. Can you tell me whether it is difficult to remove the flat cables to the power button and the trackpad, without damaging them? These are glued to the bezel with double-sided adhesive tape. Thank you for the reply. Best regard, Otto
You only need to carefully uncover it and it will not damage the cable.
Thank you for the details on the disassembly process. Was very useful today.
