Anyone who got this Lenovo Flex can confirm if there's a port and space to add a 2.5 inch SSD? Thanks!
Earlier discussion in this thread says no.
Last year's model had an extra slot but this year (the one on sale) doesn't have it.

Can't you replace the existing one with a larger one though?

Yeah. THere is no SATA port. But I guess the battery is bigger than last year's model so I'm good with that.

Yes that you should be able to do - replace the existing SSD.
The original question seemed to be about adding a 2nd drive.

However from what I've read:
(a) not all drives / mfrs will work on this machine even if they have the right connector and are NVMe.
(b) Lenovo might void the warranty if you do it yourself - you'd need pay for factory authorized service to do the upgrade.

For you guys who already opened the box, does it come with a pen inside?

Haven’t opened mine as it’s gift for my niece, I’d like to know now, if there is no pen, I’m going to order one from amazon.

The reason that I’m asking is because of this unboxing video on YouTube.

No pen at all. DOes have a sticker on the laptop telling me Pen is Optional.

This was a tempting deal, and I would have jumped on it had it been a lighter laptop. But I went with the 2.5lb Asus UX331UA from Costco at $889 instead. Don't care about the 2in1 but I would love a side-by-side feel and build comparison. Unfortunately, no Microsoft store near me so I unable to compare. So far the Asus is as light as a Macbook Air and the keyboard, screen and speakers are excellent.

Is there a RFD thread for that laptop? Available online?

Not sure. But there are lots of great reviews of this model online. Best Buy has the 14 inch version now at $899. The feel and finish of these Zenbooks are highly refined. Beautiful ultra thin aluminum chassis, amazing screen and an excellent keyboard with no flex, under $1K. Glad to pick up the extra 1 year warranty from Costco too.

$200 more for a bigger SSD and a bit better build?
