    So my warranty on my blade has expired and I decided to open the thing up and was just amazed by the pure beauty of the thing :heart: and noticed that under the switchblade is a completely open space that looks like it would perfectly fit an SSD, so as i have about 50-60gb left on the original 512gb SSD I was hoping i could get some advice on some compatible SSD's and some mounting tips from those of you that have done this already, and don't tell me you haven't cause like its just to perfect for someone not to do almost as if @Min-Liang Tan purposely did it :0 . Also i am hoping to put a 1tb SSD in my blade (yes i know thats extremely expensive but its christmas so fuck it)

    I don't have one, so I have no input there. However, I wish you good luck and hope that it all works out!! :)

    I'm not sure what the blade looks like underneath, are you saying that there is a second slot for an additional hard drive?
    For just general information, most SSDs come with a 2.5" form factor (that's the thickness). I don't think there's multiple types of connections, so any SSD should be compatible.
    If you're looking for a drive to buy, I've heard many good things about the Samsung 840 Evo. If you got more money to burn, you could try the 840 Pro or even the 850 (which is fairly new). The 840 Evo is probably most cost efficient though.
    Hope this helped, but don't take anything I've said as 100% fact, I've never installed a SSD myself.

    @Vandrill The place where your palm rests below the switchblade is empty so there is room to put another ssd if there is cable mangement room.

    Sounds like it's similar to my laptop then. You could try taking your current SSD out and putting it in the open slot, take it's dimensions, then go look for something similar
