This is m.2 slot for 2242 SATA SSD. In models with factory installed HDD it used for the caching purpose. But the drive in this slot might be used as an additional drive storage depending on its capacity.

Which the 3rd notch do you mean? Two notches on the right (connector) side mean it's a SATA drive.

Get almost any branded drive - Samsung, Crucial, Transcend, Hynix, LiteOn etc. Not the cheapest "noname", of course.

In this case the number of notches (clearly, according to the m.2 specification, they are named "keys" with specific symbol) doesn't matter.

Each key on the host and their combination should specify the type of supported device. But sometimes there are some mess. The key B (in place of 12-19 pins) on your motherboard means the slot could accept the following cards:
PCIe x2/SATA/USB 2.0/USB 3.0/ HSIC/SSIC/Audio/UIM/I2C
The M key (59-66 pins) if it'd present means:
PCIe x4/SATA.
Both keys on the SSD in the post #4 mean it's SATA SSD.

Anyway, the slot supports SATA SSD only, the drive is SATA either.
