    Give us your full Aspire 5 model number like a515-54G, year (2021?) and we will advise you on the upgrade for your laptop.

    Your full model number is usually on the same sticker as your serial number, it should look something like A5xxx-xxx-xxxx. You likely do have an M.2 slot for a SSD, though the slot specs will be determined by your model number. Without knowing which model you have we can't really help at all for ram and such.
