I understand that SSDs are expensive but why not swap the 2.5 inch hard drive for an SSD Instead? Just any drives like a Crucial MX500 is way better than a HDD in pretty much every factor

Price per gigabyte and total capacity are where SSDs are inferior to HDDs. Although it was only a 1TB HDD, it allowed the laptop to go for a lower price than a SSD of the same size - that would've added another 100 bucks or so.
Sucks that particular model was equipped with a 5400rpm drive; that is slow for anyone planning to use it as a gaming library. That should've been at least a 7200rpm one.
