My Latitude 5580 has a 500 GB M.2 Drive in it, and I thought it would have room for a 2.5" drive, but it doesn't. I was thinking of mounting the 850 evo without its shell because it's only about half the size of its shell.

The attached image is not of my laptop, but of one configured with the same storage configuration as mine.



Look at about 3:20 on this video to see what the 500GB 850 evo looks like without its shell (on the right): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGzYeJoenMk

What do you think about mounting the 850 evo without its shell into that 2.5" bay?

No. I was going to buy one on Tuesday from a local shop.
I do have an external usb hard drive reader that I'm attempting to use to install linux to the ssd while it's outside of my laptop.
