    Hello, I'm going to be buying a blade soon (1TB HDD + 128gb SSD) and I'm wondering what upgrades I can make. I plan on upgrading the ram, but I can't find the exact type of SSD is already installed, is it a 2.5inch or a m.2-2280? Also how would I go of moving windows from what ever drive it Is on to the new one? Thank you.

    The SSD is a M.2-NVMe-SSD. Here you can find everything you need to know: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Razer...0H-GTX-1060-Max-Q-Laptop-Review.343591.0.html

    What I did on my 2019 RTX2070 advanced model: Swapped the existing 256GB SSD to a Samsung 970 Pro 512GB:
    1. Start the Blade with the original SSD and login to Windows so that the Windows Key can be linked online to your Microsoft account.
    2. Download Windows 10 iso on a USB stick using Windows Media Creation Tool
    3. Shut down the Blade, swap the SSD
    4. Start the Blade by booting from the SSD and install Windows
    5. Once you have logged in to Windows it will recognize your online key validation and Windows is activated by your online account.
    6. Done
