Could I get a new SSD or PCI-e Samsung Pro M2 960 put in this model. It has Samsung 850 SSD and load Win 10 Pro on it?

Its a laptop with a
i7 4810MQ
GTX 980M GPU
SAMSUNG PRO 850 SSD

I'm wondering if I could get a M2 Samsung 960 Boot installed in it. With an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.Maybe a GPU upgrade

I think that’s the Sager 9377. If so then I think it predates the m.2 technology, so not possible.    I does have multiple slots , 2 of each, for mSata and 2.5 “ thin drives. The second mSata is under the keyboard.      

Here’s a link I kept from a couple of years ago that shows it’s interior and has good info.

http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/sager-np9377-clevo-p377sm-a-review-by-htwingnut.749943/

Double check the model number to confirm my info.   

Hope this helps.

As far as gpu upgrade, I don’t believe the new 10 series cards like gtx 1070 will fit or the laptops power supply be sufficient to upgrade. The new 10 series are full size gpu , not full size card of course, and need the laptop designed for them.     

A call to DS is always the best idea just to make sure .   

Hate to say, but imho, buying an upgradable laptop is kind of a waste.    A couple of generations later cpu and gpu don’t normally fit plus they are very expensive.

Looks like a 960 SSD drive is only upgrade option.

Thanks
