So here's my question, what is the interface (connection) for the SSD in the latest ASUS ROG G751JY? Such as SATA mSATA etc, can anyone tell me the interface please? I want to know so that if I ever get one one day, that I'll be able to replace the SSD with an HDD. Which I personally think is more reliable, please do not tell me otherwise, I do NOT want an SSD with limited write cycles.

EDIT: Nevermind, answered my own question. It looks to be PCIE, but it also has 2 SATA ports so you can indeed have 2 SATA hard drives instead.

Do you plan to write to your SSD every minute of every day for like the next decade? Because if so, then yeah, you might have something to worry about. If you plan to use your computer like every other consumer user, the SSD will outlive you, and the HDD. You will replace the laptop before you replace the SSD, I guarantee you. I can't abide by "please do not tell me otherwise" because A) they're not less reliable, and B) it is highly unlikely you will hit your limited write cycles in your lifetime use of the SSD, unless you're going to be writing to it every minute of every day.

Also, SSDs are considerably more reliable than say, a Hard disk platter that can get corrupt if you bump the laptop with a drop and the needle skips while it's performing a write. Just saying.

To answer your actual question, they are *usually* connected via regular SATA, though there is a possibility it is connected via mSATA, but I haven't seen a teardown of the G751 yet. The G750 from the year before was definitely over SATA.
