    They're just m.2 drives.

    the description on all models on amazon say that it is SATA, i dont know if they are not accurate and the m2 is NVMe? but again Dave Lee was getting around 300MB speeds.

    I posted the SSD 128gb m2 readouts already, in no way are those NVMe.. Just normal sata3.

    I also expect the 256gb and 512gb SKUs to be also normal sata3 m2.

    SATA speeds. That's frustrating then if they are SATA. Really expecting NVME for this price level...

    I'm getting my GS63VR tomorrow and hoping it will be a good product.

    One question -- should I do a fresh install of Win 10? Or can I manually uninstall any bloatware (if, so which?). I'm leaning toward fresh install, but i'm not sure. If I do a fresh install, do I need to use my own Win 10 key, or keep the recovery partition or something?

    Man i wanted this laptop but it is just to much to compromise, more noise, more heat, and less upgradability. guess im just going for GT62 or AsusGL502, probably Asus because 1700$ is my absolute max. That said, the thickness and weight of GS63VR are just amazing to those who value them the most.

    Yep, I wanted to love this laptop too that I tried two of them.. :/ I didn't like using the machine under gaming, felt a bit too warm for long sessions and of course, entirely vacuum cleaner like fans.

    MSI does not load a lot of third party software; removing that will be quicker than a clean install of 10 (if you do a clean install of 10, activation should be automated once you are connected to the internet - but back up the recovery image onto a USB before you do anything.

    As for the software: Keep whatever you want. You can disable things from startup but keep them installed, by the way; this will lower the impact on your boot time, and you'll still have the software if you need it.

    So MSI clearly advertises NVME drives on their product page, has a small blurb that NVME drives are optional; yet all of the current configs lack NVME? I don't get it....
