Dell vostro 5568 comes with SSD or not?

Jump to solution

Hi Hope you all are doing well. First i must apologize for marking my country as US because my country sri lanka is not in your country list 😞

I am a sri lankan citizen who is willing to buy your product vostro 5568 Core i7 7th Generation from your sri lankan agent softlogic . Following is the link that i am following on this product...
    I contacted team there and they informed me that in this laptop version there is no way to put SSD hard drive inside to the laptop . But in your manual here http://webshop.eltele.no/pdf/25500B4B-B8A6-4085-AD06-B9426CB29686.pdf   says that this laptop has place for SSD card. why softlogic staff saying that there is no way to insert ssd card to this laptop while manuals says we can.? or is this fake product that they are selling (sorry i just want to keep myself out of trouble)?     please give me detailed answer because i really want to add ssd to my laptop to improve its speed. and i would like to know that whether i can replace hdd drive of this laptop with ssd drive without risking warranty or not.. and which drive did you install the windows 10 os? SSD or HDD(if exists) ? thanks a lot

Dell can build/sell it with an SSD + HDD, but they (mysoftlogic) did not purchase builds with the SSD. They do not build it, they just buy it from us in a set configuration and then resell them. As the guide shows, you can add the SSD. But any warranty would only apply to the hardware shipped, not the added SSD. You would start over and install the operating system on the SSD. You will use the Dell installed software to create an operating system backup to USB backup drive. Then boot to the USB backup drive and install the operating system.

It is very possible that more than one mainboard is shipped -- if you already have the system, check to see whether the M.2 connector is there.  If it is, you can add an SSD.

Since warranty support is through your dealer, you'll have to ask them whether or not it's a warranty violation to open the system and install the SSD or swap the hard drive.

Very much thanks for your quick answer. I really appreciate it. I will buy this laptop. You guys doing a great job here. Anyway you guys really should start your own company branch in Sri lanka. Then no one has to fear when buying dell laptops due to bogus reassembled laptops. thanks again

The i7-7500U only has one motherboard which does have the M.2 connector. On our sales site, you can choose to either get the SSD or not get the SSD.

It needs an M.2 2280 SSD in SATA format (NOT NVMe or PCie).
