y700 15ISK - Help choosing m.2 SSD

Hi. 

 

I have a 1TB TB disk, but want to add an m.2 disk as a system disk. 

 

After a few hours of googling I realise that I need qualified help. 

 

What kind of SATA m.2 SSD will fit?

Hello,

 

This is the M.2 drive installed in most of the Y700 units:

In order to add another drive, you'll need to follow the instructions starting on Page 40 (according to the document) of the Hardware Maintenance Manual:

I have a Samsung Evo 850 500GB m.2 card. They were on sale on Amazon when I got mine for $130:
