Since this SSD comes in a standard m.2 form factor, we popped in into our desktop workstation for a peep at its contents.

In fact, it's strikingly similar to drives we've found in certain other recent Microsoft devices.

If you were expecting it to be partitioned a lot like the hard drives found in prior Xboxes, you're way ahead of us.

Even though the SSD itself is fairly standard, if past experience is any guide, you'd better plan on some serious headaches if you ever need to replace or upgrade it in the future. Will it even work at all? All we know is our gut says maybe.
