Hello, thanks in advance for any help and taking the time to read this! Forgot to add the main SSD option on my other same question but can't delete it..

The most detailed info I found was only for AN515-55 (not my model specifically) which says- "You get two M.2 slots that can work in RAID 0 mode. They are designated by numbers on the motherboard, stating that number 1 supports PCIe drives only, while number 2 can hold both PCIe and SATA drives. Not in the last place, there is a 2.5″ SATA drive bay for your gaming libraries."

I'm out of my 512gb  -
Can anyone confirm there is an additional M.2 slot plus a SATA slot?

For additional storage, narrowed down -

(This one was highly recommended over the other 2 b/c of DRAM but costs ~$20 more)
Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5" SSD for $84.99

PNY CS900 1TB M.2 SATA3 Internal SSD for $71.00

+

Kingston 960GB A400 SATA3 2.5" Internal SSD for $64.00

(ALSO - I know this is definitely a noob question.. but i am slightly confused (trying to add 1TB) because the Kingston shows only SATA3 while the PNY has M.2 or SATA 2.5.)

I don't want to copy over my main SSD to another one and replace the one already installed, I just want to add more storage.
IF my model DOES have an additional M.2 slot plus the SATA bay, what do you guys recommend?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE FELLAS (and girls)!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Hi,
    Yes, your model has the second slot for a M.2 NVMe/SATA SSD, I would suggest you get the PNY M.2 SATA SSD and install in the second slot.
