    Hi
      Most of E15 series models esp E5-575* ones have vacant m.2 2280 slot .
      But to confirm as well as check its capabilities like whether supports PCIe v3 with NVMe feature type SSD like Samsung 960 evo etc
    For Windows OS please refer -- i am pasting exactly verbatim "brummyfan" provided earlier in similar thread for m.2 ssd queries:

    "You need to find out whether you have a PCI Express Root port with maximum link width  (either 2x or 4x) available, you can check this by installing HWiNFO64 , run the program, expand Bus, expand PCI Bus, expand  all PCI Express Root Ports(by clicking + sign) and look for the value in the right pane, for  more info, read this thread:https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/497241/acer-aspire-e5-575-52jf-m-2-nvme-support/p1"
    For Linux OS:
      You need to use "sudo lspci -vvv" to get pci bridge device details and check if capabilities of the vacant pci bridge port from its output.
      (i.e no: of pci lanes/width available,speed etc).
    Mostly if x2/2 lanes available i.e  max.width available is 2 then speed difference between m.2 SATA type SSD and m.2 PCIe with NVMe type SSD may not be that big for practical usage for ordinary users (only 3times ). You need x4/4 lanes to realize fullspeed for pcie type ssd
