  1. Nice breakdown. Do you have more info on the wwan slot? I saw a youtube video where a guy installed a m.2 drive there but don’t know the speeds. I don’t think it’s NVMe but looking up info in dell is very difficult. Thanks.

  2. Hi! Is it possible to keep the M.2 drive in place, and install a 2.5″ (7mm high) SSD at the same time?
    For me it looks like you have to remove the M.2 drive if you want to have the 2.5″ drive (and I couldn’t find a standard SATA connector either).

    1. Hi, if you want to install a 2.5″ SSD, you need to remove the M.2 SSD. The better way is install a M.2 2242 SSD on the WWAN M.2 slot.
