To anyone who wish to get my Confiq at that price, it seems not possible now. The best one is selecting the $1564 model and I reduce everything to my config and I will get it at $1,011.50. You can try to factor in shopback. There seems to be a 6% shopback at the last option in shopback page.

**Also, the price I am stating is based on Student discount store.

Tried online configuration, it says PCIe SSD.
Did not state NVMe.

After configure, at accessories, can add NVMe SSD. So I'm also confused by the options there.

Please let me know if it's NVMe or not.

Thanks
Bro, its NVMe SSD. Lenovo OEM: RPFTJ128PDD2EWX

Tried entering logging into student acct, close it and then enter lenovo link via shopback, it didnt capture the student price. It followed the normal price. Even with 6% shopback, it is only a few dollars cheaper (for my selection of options). I rather get the student price coz i no need wait 75 days to cash out and must also ensure shopback is recorded.

Helped a fren select the following at $1141:

+3 yrs warranty, mouse and bag
Change to 1050ti 2gb
Change to 72% gamut screen
Change to 1tb hdd and no ssd
Change to AC 2x2 wireless

Will be buying adata sx6200 256gb ssd at $89 (after 12% from citi). Since it will be on offer on 11.11, it will go lower. Then help him clone over from hdd to ssd.

student price works with lenovo leh. i tried, the cashback is in my shopback account now. just login to your student account accordingly after clicking on the shopback link

managed to buy the gaming mouse pad at $0.01 after emailing the sales person.

I have not add a 2.5 storage drive yet. Thinking of a 1TB ssd leh. Will retain the lenovo though.. I feel NVME drives are still quite pricey.


I would like to share those who owns or intending to get this laptop. This model can be quite prone to pressure marks. I think this is influence by the soft back cover of the screen. I carry to school in my school bag and got the depression marks. Just avoid doing that or have a protected compartment. Best is carry by hand-carry case.

Look for other brands too. Maybe ADATA

Use the ribbon cable given, then go to disk management to initialise the drive. Done!

I watch youtube guide on opening the bottom case. Just follow and also download the hardware manual to follow. Get those plastic pry tools.

Yes, so far its 7mm. I went to measure too. The only difference should be applied to hdd. 2.5 Hdd have the 2 size.

Was also think of using hdd instead since this laptop can use the optane memory

Just an update to my Legion Y530. Added 480GB SSD with the given sata ribbon cable and 8GB Ram (Black PCB) from Black Friday hoots. Sums up the upgrade for my laptop.

Before (ram slots are hidden behind the metal shield):
