Inspiron 5323 msata capacity and specs

Hi. I'd like t buy an msata SSD to install Windows there and leave the HDD as a secondary drive. What do I need to take into account for choosing the right SSD? Any m.2 is suitable? Any storage size limitations? Read through all model specification but didn't find the right answer

M.2 and mSATA are not the same -- you can't use an M.2 drive; this system is mSATA only.

Because mSATA is obsolete, you're likely to find the prices (per megabyte) higher than for a common M.2 SSD -- unless you have plans to keep this system awhile, the cost of a moderately sized mSATA SSD (say 256G) will be about the total value of the system, so it may be wise to evaluate the cost in light of the remaining lifespan of the system, and on its current value.
