The M.2 slot can take a max 512 GB drive and unfortunately no top-tier brands make drives in that form factor. Best available is probably Transcend; slower than big names but probably not enough to notice.
As dr_st said, a 1 TB 2.5" SSD will probably be cheaper than two smaller ones would be. 256 GB and smaller drives especially are far more per GB than anything larger in the same product line [EDIT: also lower-capacity drives tend to have lower performance].
Probably only good reason to want two physical drives is for redundancy; I like to have an extra drive I can boot from if primary fails or is corrupted.
EDIT: Transcend now has an MTS430S 512 GB drive available for M.2 SATA 42mm. This is a TLC drive and much less expensive than the MLC MTS400 now.
