My suggestion is to use the crucial upgrade tool to decide on a compatible SSD module.  As far as I know the SSD modules have the same size limits as conventional disk drives.  So under UEFI booting and gpt partition tables LOTS of terabytes are addressable.  Windows Knowledge Base will provide the exact maximum.


Crucial will also recommend RAM modules.  My Lenovo Ideapad 330 has 4 GB soldered in RAM and a place to install a single ddr4 module.  If I place 16GB module I'll have 20 GB.  Lenovo factory recommends 16GB total as maximum.  If you purchase what crucial recommends, most likely it will fit and work.  If not you can probably send it back to Crucial, but read the fine print of purchase terms.


Good Luck,
