The conclusion is that some do not know what they are talking about.  There are NO SLOTS for M2 or MSATA SSD on the motherboard.

You could add a specific SSD controller to the X1 slot.   Velocity SOLO.

I am interested in adding SATA Ssd.  Not MSATA.  Possible?

The XPS 8300 supports SSDs.

Yes. I'd suggest a Samsung 850 series, as I've had good results with those, and a Silverstone SDP08 adapter bracket
