I have a Lenovo u530 touch and I recently installed a Crucial 500gb SSD (replacing the SHD). And the computer is godly fast but what about an M.2 SSD? Would I even need it? And what does it do exactly?
Then it is up to you. Since that drive is a SATA version, it may not help, but I don't have any specifications or testing which would confirm or deny.
I also cannot verify which device is compatible with that computer or the quality of that particular device. Make sure and check both the read and write speeds to make sure it won't be restricted in one mode.
