I have done some research into this myself but I would appreciate some reassurance before I order.

Yes, according to the manual that laptop will take both PCI-E and SATA based m.2 SSDs. The MX300 is SATA based, and should work.

Any 2.5 inch solution is a sure thing with almost any laptop Weatherby 2.5 hard drive or 2.5 solid-state drive. And when it's not, on Amazon.com and other sites you can order DVD tray adapters which replace the preinstalled DVD drive in a laptop with a hollowed out DVD drive shaped adapter that fits any 2.5 inch drive
