    Not that I know of... but honestly, it's as easy as unscrewing the back screws, removing the m.2 SSD and inserting a new one. It's easier than Lego lol...

    I hope it can take SATA m.2. Sure not as fast as PCIE m.2 but I happen to have just bought a 2TB SATA m2 which I wouldn't mind putting into this so I basically can have my entire Steam library on the go.

    Otherwise I will just put the m.2 in an external enclosure. When it's gaming the laptop is generally sat down somewhere anyway :)

    why don't you go for the 970 pro instead of 960 pro? I think it's performing better and it's cheaper(499$ - 600$)

    Would this be compatible ?

    And what steps would I need to take to successfully install this in regards to the Chroma and Windows licensing?

    you woukd have to double check but I don t see why the 970 pro would not work where the 960 pro does.

    This is budget m2 from intel not as fast as Original that comes with Blade but still faster than sata I believe since it’s nvme. If amazon has stock usually i think it’s around €350 to €400.

    Here’s including some comparison speed and price. I won’t buy 256gb laptop nowaday anyway, I would go with 512gb, and buy 5tb ex 2,5 HDD for gaming storage, 2tb isn’t enough for me.

    what if we buy 1tb external SSD instead of 5tb HDD? What's the difference between SSD and HDD in compare to Gaming ?
  16. Joikansai

    Joikansai Well-Known Member VANGUARD

    Faster loading time, usually and mostly on save scenes. Though it’s not huge imo, especially we’re now on USB3 speed. On game play there’s no difference like laggy etc, at least for me.

    Then is it good to buy 5 tb HDD or 1 tb SSD ? What are the advantages of SSD against HDD as an external drive for gaming ?

    Smaller and through usb c some can have around 500mb/s reading vs around 100mb on hdd. Personally for gaming I don’t need that speed, for OS yes.
