    Why would you go back? Just swap out the HDD on the newer machine and replace it with a SSD.

    It's not like the HDD is soldered to the machine or anything.

    I highly doubt they'd put a PCIE slot on a machine in this price range/form factor. My money is on it being SATAIII.

    If anybody's ordered the machine with the SSD, then we can find out if they look at their parts description and tell us what SSD they got.

    I'd probably just get an M.2 and install windows to that instead and use the SSHD as data storage mainly.
    Whats the situation with W10, will the Dell likely have a restore partition and would you be able to restore it to a M.2?

    Although i see W10 is available to just d/l anyway and use the key from the Dell :- http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

    You misunderstand me, i'm saying i dont think i could live with the non-SSD speeds. M.2 or swap the SSD over i would have to do, i know its not soldered! :)

    Good. There's no reason any sane person would go back to HDD, its like slow torture after using a SSD.

    Dell machines come with a backup partition and software to create a restore point/media (usually). So you create a recovery USB drive, and use that to do a clean install to a new SSD.

    Or just create a generic Windows 10 installation drive (using the media creation toolkit that's readily available on the web), then download and install the drivers from Dell's support website.

    I went ahead and ordered a 250gb M.2 Sata III drive for $89 from Newegg and another 8gb ram. Thanks for the input! My laptop will be delivered Monday!

    No the 8gb is just a cache on the 1TB drive to make is read and write faster. This goes in the empty M.2 card slot inside the laptop, in addition to the regular hard drive.
