(華) 要是成功將記憶體(ram)提升至16gb,選擇哪一個處理器能夠操作到電腦輔助設計軟體(atocad)咧?

如果你係由$890配置開始客制自己要嘅系統。。。無論有或無操作系統,一樣扣$90。
我係選擇有 。

Any good recommendation for a second compatible 512GB SSD and other required tools to open or mount the SSD.

Don't know if the SSD are can hold 2 pieces if not, I intend to use the empty 2.5 inch HDD slot

no. only 1. Samsung SSD is good.

don't understand your rationale of having two pieces. If you want to do RAID, go get a computer or a fatter notebook.

The other sdd for software cache and files before storage.

I read some thinkpad models need to buy a small rack or cover to hold the SSD.

Thanks! Btw is this the best value laptop as of now? I actually been looking at getting a new laptop for almost 2 months already. I see the usual intel ones but thought of just wait awhile more. I thought of trying out a Ryzen laptop hence looking into this Thinkpad. I don't think are other Ryzen laptops selling in SG right?
