Which SSD should I choose for 15-bc404ur

Hello! I have a spare SSD slot in my laptop, but I don't know which SSD should I choose. I don't even know if my laptop works with NVMe or not. Please tell me where can I find this information and please give some advice on SSD for this laptop model. Thank you in advance!

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.


For the 15-bc400 model series the supported drive types can be found in chapter 1 on pages 4 & 5.


According to the manual, the slot supports SATA M.2 drives, but it also supports Intel Optane™ (3D Xpoint) Solution PCIe Gen3x2 M.2 memory.


That leads me to believe that the slot would also accept NVMe M.2 SSD's, since Optane is NVMe.
