Hi, does anyone know if the 15-cx0056wm configuration of the HP Gaming Pavilion model has an M.2 PCIe slot that supports an SSD / Intel Optane module? Thanks, Dan.

Inside with back removed:

Service Manual

 

See p. 2. The M.2 slot can handle an NVME M.2 or an Optane module. However, since this is a Wal-Mart Black Friday model please do not buy upgrade parts unless you first open it and check to be sure the slot is present. Often it is not on WalMart models with model number ending xxwm.

 

Post back with any other questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Thank you very much! But I will wait a little bit more for a definite answer about the M.2 PCIe slot in the particular HP 15-cx0056wm model.

You ain't getting anything more definite from HP. You have to open it to check.If you are needing this information to decide whether to buy it then I would say don't.
