    Sorry, I am not really good at computers, but I need one for my work. I chose the PCIe M2HDD 256GB, but I did NOT select hard drive. What I thought is they are going to put the system in the PCIe M2256GB, and this is going to be my "hard drive" Am I correct ? or I must pick a hard drive like 128 SSD ?

    Thank you so much.

    If you are asking if a M2 drive can be used as a hard drive, then the answer is yes. Provided that you can live with the limited size. Some people do not save a lot of documents, photo etc. And an M2 256 GB is good and it is fast.
