Hi. I am trying to Upgrade my Alienware m17 r2 Laptop. I got the Default Option (Where you don't pay for anything extra), and I want to Get More Memory on my System.
Right now, I'm trying to Upgrade my SSD from 256 Gb. I've been looking Online, and I don't see any HDD for this Laptop. Does this Model Have a Slot for HDD's? I wanted to Set Boot Priority to my Current 256 SSD, and have my HDD as my Main Storage.
Also, Does anyone know which one I have to Buy, I don't want to end up buying memory that isn't compatible for my Model.
OK, I am a little confused as you talk about increasing memory but go on to describe looking for an SSD which is storage and not memory (RAM). So assuming you really want to increase storage you are looking for a 2.5" drive and you do not have the ability to have that form. What you want is an M.2 SSD as your system can hold 2 M.2 NVMe/PCIe SSDs. You can see the service manual here for more information. And look here for compatible drives. And do not buy the SATA SSD as the NVME drive is about 5 x faster.
