    Even I have purchased the same model and have the same confusion whether it can be upgradeable to higher SSD capacity or not...
    There is no solid info about this anywhere...

    That's great. Yeah we can upgrade there are 3 slots for SSD and separate HDD also there as 4th. We can upgrade upto 1 TB SSD in each slot I think. But unsure that what kind of SSD is supported and are good. I am not sure you can upgrade it yourself or not. I recommend go for service center and have a upgrade with SSD so warranty does not get void.

    Did you got it through Flipkart yesterday?
  • SIVAKRISHNASIVAKRISHNA Member Posts: 5 New User
    Yes, I had ordered it through Flipkart yesterday but yet to be delivered to me (may be tomorrow).

    By the way thanks for the info. But are you pretty sure that it has three SSD slots??
    If yes then from where did you get this information?
    Can you please provide any link for this?
  • HARDIK18HARDIK18 Member Posts: 21 Networker
    Sure. I will be able to help you with that. I remember I got it through YouTube video. I need to look again in history so I need adequate time. One more important thing where are you from. My delivery is expected 25 October. You say that only 2-3 days so. Can you please provide such help.

    Hi I got tha same information regarding SSD slots from this YouTube video. He says it has 2 extra slots. But I don't think after seeing on mother board. You can have a look.

    Thank you for the you tube link. I too found some in youtube but none of them are model specific.

    Ya there are two slots for SSD, but the right side slot doesn't have any metal case cover, unlike the left one.

    But still it is unclear to me that how much SSD capcity each of the slots have. And also can I replace my 1 TB HDD with a hybrid drive or not?

    I am from WestBengal, India.
    Where are you from?

    It is possible that some other model, which uses the same main board, has a third m2 slot 2280 here:
