Upgrade a Laptop with an M.2



I have been in the market for a new laptop lately as my old one is a P.O.S. whipping a grand ole i3-4030u. The one that has caught my attention is the one posted above, BUT there is one big thing that I would like to know. For context, my old laptop had a 500gb 5200rpm hard drive running windows 8. Later after I found a cheap 250gb 2.5" SSD, that I put a brand new copy of windows 10 on(I had one lying around after a failed pc build). Afterwards, I couldn't imagine booting up off of a hard drive ever again. So I was wondering( this laptop does have an M.2 ssd slot on it according to the reviews) if I could put a, say WD Blue 250gb in the slot could I move the os over and use the hard drive as a storage drive. Or would it be easier to wipe the drive and put my other license on the m.2 directly?
