Hi, i just got mine so ready yourself for my recommendation that is based on one night of work on it. I used my old bluetooth keyboard and mouse and they are ok, but really the best thing about them is just they are small - probably not good if you really need to do serious work - its the microsoft Sledge Keyboard (i assume it is the first model..they probably have new ones), and the Sculpt Touch mouse. Again, i just have these for some quick work on the go - id rather use a wired keyboard and mouse. But I have no issues with the bluetooth stuff at all.
I opted to stay very clear from Samsung stuff and went with Crucial ram (micron chips on it) and the Intel 600p 512. I only have one 16gb ram stick for now, but have no issues. And I just use one SSD - so not getting into RAID and etc.
ram - 16GB (1x 16384MB) Crucial CT16G4SFD8213 DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM CL15-15-15 Single
ssd - 512GB Intel SSD 600P Series M.2
What is your planned choice for O/S? If you are going to be using Windows 10, then your choices are ok. If you want Windows 7, however, there is a problem. Windows 7 does not have native NVMe support and you need drivers to be provided. Intel (and Kingston) do not provide drivers, so you can only use Windows 10 [Aside: someone posted a Windows 7 install image that supposedly has the native drivers (from Windows 10) added. This image did not work with an Intel drive]. Your two choices that provide drivers (and support Windows 7) are Samsung and Toshiba (OCZ).
Hope this helps,
Yes the intention was to use Windows 7. May have to review that. I was going to use Intel 540 m.2 ssd due to the fact that they offer 1tb capacity for the same price as a 512gb ssd from Samsung.
Has anyone loaded 32gb of ram yet. As I said, it's more so I don't have to upgrade later than actually needing it now.
