I bought a new dell g15 5510 for dj use. Added the 2tb m.2 ssd thought it would run virtual dj easily but it didn't. I tried all advice but it was suffering latency issues which I couldn't fix or rely on when playing live. Ive since cut my losses and sold it. At the weekend I bought a second hand hp elitebook i7 to get me by. Ive ordered 16gb of ram and it looks like I'll get a 2tb 2.5 ssd for it and run it til it breaks lol.
It is not possible to do what your asking for a laptop at the present time, Possibly in the future. You can put 2 of these PCIe m.2 ssd onto a card that goes into a PCIe slot on a desktop pc only. Msata is micro sata and are generally on older slower sata 1 or sata 2 controllers. Your laptop must be old or a netbook or cromebook? Almost all laptops I have seen use either IDE or sata hdd's. Newer machines now come with 2.5" sata ssd or m.2 drives that are sata also. At the very high end they will probably have PCIe M.2 but I'm not aware of who is doing that yet. What new laptop are you getting. Make and model number would be helpful here. It could be a 2.5" sata ssd or more likely an M.2 sata ssd but should tell you somewhere in the specs.
Great! Thank you. I'll upgrade the ram and get a bigger hard drive for music
Exactly the same NAND flash tech as in your current M.2 drive, just a different connection.
The laptop has a msata 128gb hard drive already installed, are these good and reliable? I would get a separate drive for music. Its going to be used as a dj laptop. i7 elitebook folio 8gb ram
