    M.2 are still a little bit expensive, while 2.5" sata ssds you can buy 2TB for 400~500 €/$. That's the advantage of having a bigger notebook like the GT73.

    SATA SSD = cheap but saturated in throughput (up to 600MB/s), no further improvement available.
    PCIe NVMe SSD = expensive but comes with much higher throughput (up to 15.76 GB/s), further improvement available.

    Yes very good speeds for the pcie. For most people sata 3 speeds are enough even nowadays, and allows you for much cheaper storage. Just buy a macbook Pro with 2TB ssd and them by the same storage in ssd 2.5" Crucial Samsung, etc. You step down in price from €2500 to 450~550 maybe.

    On the GS63 you need to fully take out the mb from chassis to access RAM and m.2 ssd.

    Probably will be even harder with this one.

    I'm still trying to be optimistic that the 2nd m.2 port is easy to get at.

    So is the glass half full, half empty or twice as big as it needs to be?
