    I’m just writing this review to say that the 1650 15inch version DOES have a 2.5 inch bay to add a HDD, despite what others have said in the answers section. It comes with a 256Gb M.2 SSD, between the main battery and BIOS battery, and has a separate, standard, empty 2.5 bay. I almost didn’t buy this laptop because other customer’s gave bad info.

    pros:attractive hardware features.bright screen with 120 hz refresh rate (very attractive looking)good aesthetics (it looks good)Cons:-Horrible driver support (wifi driver doesn’t even exits on the internet, never mind windows updates, and the actual wifi hardware interface is so bad that after attempting to restore windows to default settings, windows wasn’t able to recognize it anymore! and I had to use LAN Ethernet to connect to the internet)-System fails mostly due to integrated and dedicated graphics cards conflicts (more than 4 blue screens within the first 3 hours of using it).-On top of all of the above, its extremely slow … like so slow it doesn’t even make sense as the hardware and the ram are supposed to be good in terms of handling stress ….????Conclusion: very disappointing … In fact I’ve never been so much disappointed in a product that promised to deliver so much yet failed to meet the basics…. I own an Asus desktop(motherboard and such etc) and the quality is worlds apart from this embarrassment.
