@danj  I'm thinking out loud here.  The specs say:  This model is equipped by default with a 2 TB "Fusion" Drive, which combines a 128 GB SSD and a 2 TB hard drive. It has a Serial ATA (6 Gb/s) connector for a 2.5" hard drive and a PCIe connector (PCIe 2.0 x4 NVMexpress interface) for the SSD.

Given the size of the existing SSD blade, I do not see how changing out to a SSHD in place of the 2TB standard drive would help.  I would think adding a 2.5" SSD drive in a 960GB version and fusing it with the blade would work much better.  [product|IF107-135]
