If it's an mSSD like the kind that is standard on most current Lenovo units I believe it is. If it's just a regular 2.5" SSD it should work fine in any machine.

I believe the SSD in the laptop is a chip soldered onto the motherboard. So if it's soldered on, you'll need BGA equipment. How I know? I checked your motherboard's image on eBay.

Ibelieve it is the standard 2.5in unit that slides out of the side of the machine.
Once I get my hands on the second computer I'll give it a go.

If all you need is to get the files from the drive, you can install it as a seconadry in any computer and get them.

If you want to boot from that drive into the operating system, it has to be the same model with the same hardware or there will likely be issues with booting (often no boot device found or a bluescreen scrash).
