I have a brand new 17m-ce0013dx laptop and I am looking for the service manual to check out it's expandibility and how to properly open the bottom side. I think I've read this model came with either a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA drive or like mine a 500GB hybrid SSD/Optane PCIe board. Maybe I'm not right on that since it seems odd to release the same model with diff storage specs/type. My thoughts on possible expansions are 1) increase memory and 2) see if there is an open SATA bay inside that would fit one of my on-hand 1TB SSD units.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You have a 1 TB 7200 rpm hard drive and there is just one bay for a 2.5 inch SATA SSD or HDD. There is also an M.2 slot for adding an SSD. You can install an Optane module or a SATA or NVME M.2.
Max memory would be 32 gigs DDR4-2400 SO-DIMM, even though the Manual says max is 16 gigs.
Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

This unit did not come with a 1TB 7200rpm HDD. It has a 512GB hybrid SSD/Optane module instead. I suspect the 2.5" SATA bay is empty which is perfect for my 1TB SSD that needs a new home.
Thanks much for the manual. Now I know how to get the back/bottom off properly. Cheers!
