Hi there,



I am new to this community, so I hope that if my question should have been raised elsewhere, you will redirect me there.



I have recently purchased an Ideapad 3 gaming laptop. In the online shop it was written that the laptop has a 512 gb ssd drive (the laptop in the shop: https://www.1a.lt/p/lenovo-ideapad-...XWTZ8mN8mqCUy9X4EqSTZPYPi8YGkV9e9cAHXLqggcEEo ; the shop is Lithuanian, but if you scroll down, you should be able to see all the specifications of the laptop). When the laptop arrived, I saw that it has a 256 gb ssd drive, but there is also an "hdd upgrade kit" (i am adding a photo of it below) with a code "PK37A00AL00". If I understand correctly, if installed, this kit gives the additional 256 gb that were promised, right? But does this means that I will have a 256 gb ssd drive and a 256 gb hdd drive? Or does this mean that I will have a 512 gb ssd drive? Because when buying the laptop I was given the impression that it will have a 512 gb ssd drive, so, honestly, I am not sure if I should ask for a refund, or should I just go along with this upgrade kit.



Thank you very much in advance for your help.



The kit:

If you read the instructions, you'll understand what this thing does. Be sure any personal info is backed up. You don't have to do the upgrade. I have no idea why manufacturers would want to sell a product with this silly option. It is useful as a later purchase for earlier buyers looking to expand.

Here's a video of someone adding that "PK37A00AL00" hdd/SSD caddy along with a drive in it:


I'm with oscer1. Since they advertised it as having 512 GB and it doesn't, I'd return it for a replacement or a refund.

I would return this laptop. In the specs it says it has a 512 GB SSD. I translated it for everyone

Media type SSD Hard disk drive capacity (HDD) - SSD disk capacity 512 GB Total computer memory capacity 512 GB
