Upgrading the storage of my MacBook Pro 15-inch, late 2013

I want to update the storage of my MacBook Pro 15-inch, late 2013 from 512MB to 1GB.
I did some googling and it seems that I need to buy a 1GB SSD for my MacBook.
The installation seems to be fairly easy, but what kind of SSD do I need and where can I buy it?

1GB? That would be RAM.

For RAM I use Crucial.com.

For storage, I doubt the drive space was 512MB. That was what storage was 2 decades ago.

Re: SSD

If it has the same connection as the current drive and it's sold as compatible with your MacBook it should work.

What does crucial.com say about what you need?

I agree with this.

OWC is a known supplier for Apple compatible RAM and drives. Check there too.

Pro-Tip. Be sure your Apple is all updated before you start the work. Apple's are a little different but yes they have firmware or BIOS but call it their own name which I won't write here. Just start with it all up to date.
