3 questions about this laptop in case somebody knows, cause Asus live chat rep seem clueless!

Model in question:

https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-VivoBook-14-X442UQ/

1. Can this notebook take m.2 drive?

2. Also, can it take a DVD caddie to put a second hard disk?

3. Also, does opening the laptop to substitute HDD with SSD void warranty?

If anybody knows it would be great;)

if it takes ssd's it should be on the back of it .. a plastic part to remove and insert an ssd . otherwise you have to use an hdd caddy to place an ssd in place of your optical drive .. m.2 is a smaller ssd

I don't know what it will look like because I'm ordering online, no picture of the bottom of the notebook and new model.

It does say SSD, but SSD can be both a square disk and NVME or m.2 right?

If there is any sticker that covers bolt from dissasembling the unit, it will sure void your warranty. If asus doesn't give specification for upgrade you can dissasemble it yourself (Neither could i find it).

Not the same asus, but i have the asus g53s 15" laptop. It had a second drive bay and i was able to put in a second hard m2 ssd drive. The best option is to check specs of the laptop, or open it up if feasible. My warranty period was over, so I wasnt worried about that.

Yes, I saw that, but maybe crucial made a mistake?

The guy on Asus chat says it can, and guy in shop also, but I don't trust either!
