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-3-15-82ey00edpb-pl/9w2g?mtd=search&pos=regular&src=searchnode&fbclid=IwAR1qin-F2H-xWpXWTZ8mN8mqCUy9X4EqSTZPYPi8YGkV9e9cAHXLqggcEEo ; 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.

It clearly promised a 512 GB. If it now "says" (in the properties of the c:-drive) that it only has 256 GB, it's not what you bought.
Immediately return it, in stead of buying and installing an additional HDD or SSD yourself (which might void the warranty, since you opened the case yourself).
