Thanks for the information and help! I might end up buying it configured with the SSD already, but Lenovo's SSD prices are quite inflated (a 500GB Samsung 960 EVO NVMe is $270 on Amazon, but the 512GB SSD option is $450 on the Lenovo configurator), whereas Lenovo's RAM prices are actually cheaper than what I could get myself.ciuvak wrote: ↑Mar 30th, 2018 5:18 pmIf you order the T480 with the HDD it can only be replaced with a 2.5" SSD. If you want to replace that with an M.2 NVME drive you will need to buy these two additional parts:

You need BOTH the drive caddy and the cable. Unfortunately you can't just buy the caddy for M.2 and reuse the existing old cable.
Here are other options you might consider:
- configure the laptop with the M.2 drive directly from Lenovo
- import a LiteOn T11 m.2 drive from here: http://item.jd.com/15120104772.html and install it in the WWAN slot. This way you can have two drives: keep the HDD for storage and use the m.2 for OS. Interesting thing here the m.2 SSD in the main slot is only x2 pcie speed and the WWAN slot is also 2x, so there is no difference in speed.
I like wearing tinfoil hats.
