Negative. Lenovo also has a UEFI-only option which allows for GPT booting, we've tested it on a x120e and quite honestly, we see no performance-based improvement.

There are some plus sides to moving to a GPT volume, there are some threats that target MBR like TLD4 so in that effect GPT volumes makes you immune to MBR specific hijacks/attacks/exploits.
