I saw flipkart having a sale on R542UQ-DM252T,which Did not have fingerprint on it. I am wondering if Asus laptops allow hybrid M2 SSD's like the Kingston Digital SA1000M8/240G A1000 240GB PCIe NVMe M.2 2280. These are not the full NVMe drives but faster than just Sata ssd's. Some say many can take both types since its the same connector at least on desktops but not sure about laptops.. Also do they use 2 4GB ram or a singe 8GB ram? There was another model with 4GB offer.. So I guess that one would come with 4GB and take it to service center to add the 4GB offer..
