The link you provided for this computer specs says it already comes with a 256GB SSD?
If money is no object, then yes, you can upgrade the 256 SSD to a 1TB SSD.
But you can keep your SSD and just add an external HDD for storage.

Yes, that is what the specs show and what spunk.funk stated. 256GB is the unformatted size.

And yes, you can simply buy a new 1TB SSD and swap them. The retail drives typically ship with software to clone the original drive, but there are other options as well.
