I have a Dell XPS 15 9560 (2017 model) and it came with a 500 GB drive and that has been fine for now, but I’m down to about 140 GB now and there’s not really anything for me to delete. So i want to upgrade the m.2 drive that’s in it to a 2 TB drive but I’m not sure if the NVMe drives are going to be worth it to me.
My use cases for this laptop are office work, some video editing, and I use it as a visualized lab. pfSense router, connected to two VMs so I can monitor network traffic on one when I go to suspicious sites.
I feel like downgrading to the SATA drive might hinder that last use case substantially, but I don’t know the numbers and was wondering if anyone else had experience with it.
