    i am planning to buy ssd m.2 for him, YES i have free slot, but problem is... What maximum GB can support my model ? 256?512, or 1TB?etc.

    In the back is a label : M.2 2280 SLOT SUPPORT SATA SSD ONLY,
    i understand, but dont know max capacity, and is cappable also for 2280SS type?

    Basically, you need to make sure that it's M.2 2280 in size and SATA 3 in interface. As for capacity, I think even 1TB should work fine.

    Thx for reply, but I have one more question.

    ,,PCIe and SATA M.2 drives have different controllers; whereas the PCIe is the faster of the two, the SATA will generally be compatible with a wider variety of systems. If a system has a M.2 PCIe slot, an M.2 SATA SSD will not work in this computer, it will fit in the slot, but it will not work. There are some system that are dual typed, and will accept both SATA, and PCIe, but they are not the norm. Crucial M.2 SSDs at this time are only manufactured in the SATA type."

    where I can find out which one I have? PCIe or SATA, or dual typed? thx

    You have written in your opening post that your laptop is SATA 3-based, have you not?
