Any solid up to date info/best practice tips on the topic of onboard SSDs feasibility, does and don'ts, would be very much appreciated! I dont know enough on this to even know what to ask about.
When purchasing an SSD, I have found Samsung to be the best. I feel they have the best reliability, and they include cloning software. As far as I know, none of the other manufacturers do this. But I recommend Samsung for people upgrading their C: drive just for that reason. However, they are also the most expensive drives out there. If you dont need the cloning software, or for other drives in your system, I think nearly any brand SATA SSD is fine. I have also used Kingston, Sandisk, Western Digital, and even ADATA without issue.
For your laptop's mechanical drive, you probably will struggle to find drives bigger than 1 or 2 TB though. As that form factor does seem to be moving to SSDs.
Hope this helps.
