Hi @JustNooby,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Checking your machine over parts lookup shows that your system board have available slot for an m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD as shown in the image below :



OEM examples of m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD here under Compatible tab > Commodity list> Solid state drive.


Here is also the hardware manual for added reference (page 36).


You are not limited to the listed parts so you can explore whichever is available in your location.


I hope this helps answer your query.
