I'm planning to buy an XPS 15 9560 with only a 256GB SSD, is it possible to install a HDD into the laptop? Does it have an available slot to do so? If it's possible, could anyone reccomend me one or two good 1TB HDDs I could purchase? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I see...I'm buying from a website that doesn't specify the battery size. Is there any way to find out from the other specs? And if i happen to have the larger battery, would it be possible to swap it out for the smaller one? Can I even buy the smaller one standalone? Thank you once again
Ask the seller which battery is in the system -- in most cases, configurations other than those that ship with a 2.5" drive have the 97WHr battery. And while you can swap the battery, that will cut your battery runtime in half -- it may be OK for an FHD system, but don't even consider buying the 4K screen and using it with the 56 WHr battery. You'll likely see only 3-4 hours of battery run if you do.
Thank you, in that case I will consider just upgrading the SSD, but would i have to install things again such as drivers? Also what kind of 1TB SSDs could I use, can it be an SSHD? (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-ST1000LX001-Internal/dp/B00B99JUBQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&q...)

Nope, you need a m.2 2280 size SSD, preferably NVMe, I'd suggest the Samsung 970 evo 1TB.
I assume a SATA type drive would work too, but much slower.
