That's for mSATA not M.2, they are not compatible.

comment Do recommended battery charging practices for a laptop apply to an ultrabook (with non-removable battery)?
@SoheilSH: If you enable it in Windows it should then affect Ubuntu as well since it is affecting firmware built into the charging circuitry. That is why the behaviour still works if you charge with the laptop turned off rather than when it's on and running Windows.

comment Do recommended battery charging practices for a laptop apply to an ultrabook (with non-removable battery)?
@ps2goat: I used to have a Lenovo and used the conservation mode since I almost never used it on battery and I do agree that it seems that it can cause the battery charging calibration to go a bit wrong although it wasn't quite as extreme in my case. The solution seemed to be to occasionally switch to the normal charging mode, do a full discharge followed by a full charge then switch back to conservation mode and this made the percentages more accurate.

comment CasperJS and “extensafree” virus
It's a Javascript framework, it can be used for good or bad, there is no way for the developers to control what other people use it for.

comment CasperJS and “extensafree” virus
Whilst CasperJS itself isn't a virus, it's quite possible for it to be used for nefarious purposes. It's hard to tell what the script is doing without running it but it looks like it's simulating mouse clicks on some random site which can't be good.

comment Car charger for a laptop
There are voltage converters for laptops that can step up the voltage to 19V but they are more suited to lower power devices and are typically only rated at about 100W maximum. Additionally an average car might struggle to provide the full 150W through the cigarette lighter even with the engine running and there would be extra power loss due to the step up adapter. If your laptop is put under heavy stress and draws more power than the adapter or car is designed for then you will probably blow a fuse or worse you could damage something.

comment Memory not Unloading
What you are talking about is cached memory, but as his original screenshot shows, only 282MB of his 8GB of RAM is being used that way. The important figure to look at is Available RAM which is barely 5% and dangerously low - it's not surprising that performance was affected. Available memory is not the same as free memory and includes cached memory that can be reallocated.

Please provide a screenshot of the processes in Task Manager and make sure you select Show processes for all users. Also consider posting a screenshot from something like RAMMap (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff700229.aspx)
