I'm going to order a 500gb ssd.

Check the type of SSD it has now and I don't mean if it's just M.2 or mSATA.

My laptop is a 6th gen with an M.2 (128GB), just before the end of financial year and went out and got a 512GB Samsung 970 Pro (near AUD$500.00 at the time) and 2 x 16GB DDR4. Open up the laptop via a million tiny screws and popping off the plastic bottom hoping each pop didn't break anything, put it back together and nothing as a HDD.

Turns out my laptop only supported the M.2 SATA SSD while I had bought an M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. Yours being 8th Gen would I hope have support for the newer, but you never know.

I now have a pefectly good M.2 sitting on the shelf waiting for me to have a machine that I can use it in.
