Your laptop has a M.2 Type E connector, which means it is physically compatible with AX200 (AX200NGW) and AX210 (AX210NGW) adapters. 

There is a 'but'. According to the spec sheet you attached, it says that 'some' cards can be used. That makes me nervous. You will need to ask Lenovo about this. You need to ensure that they haven't done anything slimy like using Inclusion/Exclusion Lists in their BIOS.

Hope this helps,
