    Can anyone tell me whether an SSD from an m17x would fit in an old m15x with room for the default hard drive?

    M15x has no mSATA slot, space is tight in the HDD area as it "slots" in. The only way to add a second HDD/SSD would be to remove optical drive and get a caddy that converts it to 2.5 SATA interface. Buy mSATA to 2.5" converter, mount, connect with 2.5" SATA ODD Caddy, and you are in business.
