That was very easy, but also useless. I downloaded the Hardware
Maintenance Manual years ago, and it was the first thing I checked,
before posting my query on this list. I searched it on every term I
could think of, but nowhere did I find a reference to what kind of
storage cards it will take. The Hardware Maintenance Manual is really
only for replacing stuff that breaks.

I'm thinking that the information ought to be in the User Manual, not
the Hardware Maintenance Manual, or perhaps in the sales literature.
But I can't find my paper User Manual and I can't find a PDF of it on
Lenovo's web site.

I don't own any microSD cards, nor do I know anyone I can borrow one
from. If I had one it would be really easy - just stick it in the slot
and see what happens.
