    The y510p uses the new m.2 (ngff) port and from the info off the main thread, will support the 42mm version of m.2 only.

    So I doubt it will support the m5m which is the mSata format.

    It's just a different form factor for the SSD.

    There will not be any changes to performance that you cannot find in an equivalent mSATA or 2.5" SATA form factor.

    Gotta admit, I'm confused as ngff seems kinda new. If I wanted to yank the 8/24gb caching ssd, what do I buy now?

    Right now, you can't buy anything, because there aren't any aftermarket parts available that use the m.2 / NGFF form factor.

    You'll need to either wait until m.2 / NGFF SSDs start showing up as aftermarket parts you can buy, or you need to buy a 2.5" SATA SSD instead.

    And it will probably be several months before NGFF SSDs become available on the market. So I wouldn't bother waiting, and expecting them to show up next week or next month.

    The 8/24gb caching SSD reference confuses me a bit. Someone posted the Fry's ad and it referenced an 8GB SSHD so I'm curious if maybe Fry's didn't request that config when they made their deal with Lenovo which I know retailers sometimes do. Some said it was a misprint but Fry's don't do that too often As far as I know and it kinda makes sense to me so...thoughts?

    They are all that new form factor 24GB SSD cards. The 8GB is an outdated reference to Lenovo's initial intent to include the new Seagate hybrid 1TB drive that comes with 8GB SSD onboard but they did not use that drive. If you buy your own SSD like I did, you can replace the slow 1TB Samsung 5400rpm drive with a new speedy SSD and delete the mystery volume on the onboard 24GB SSD and have an extra 24GB E: drive for your own use. (D: has all the drivers and system restore stuff - cloned perfectly by Acronis 2013 before I ever powered the system up).

    Good luck and enjoy.
