Lenovo T470 M.2 Slot

Thinkpad T470 WWAN M.2 2242 SSD Drive compatible drives? So I bought a brand spanking new T470. I am a bit confused if the WWAN slot supports both M.2 SATA and/or NVMe? As most 14-inch laptops, the ThinkPad T470 has just one M.2 PCIe NVMe-enabled slot and you can’t insert a 2.5-inch drive. The former obstructs the latter. Anyway, our unit came with a Samsung PM961 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. Memory, Wi-Fi, LTE module and battery.

The ThinkPad T470s has a 14-inch touchscreen. This laptop’s screen has outstanding picture quality (1080p), and therefore should be very good for entertainment. 16:9 is the most widely used aspect ratio. This means that for every 16 pixels of width, it has 9 pixels of height. You can calculate this ratio by looking at the 1920 x 1080 resolution.

This laptop is ideal for travel compared to other laptops with displays in the 13-14 inch range, as it is thin and low-weight. The laptop has dimensions of 13.03 x 8.92 x 0.74 cm. The ThinkPad T470s weighs of 2.9 pounds. When compared to other 2-in-1 laptops it’s slightly lighter than the average of 3.08 pounds.
