  1. Hi! I bought one that comes 12gb ram – 1tb hard drive+256ssd. But I was wondering if I could upgrade it up to 32gb ram – 1tb hard drive+1tb ssd. I’ve seen that hp the max ram that sales is 16gb, they dont have the option to make it 32gb, but I seen some in amazon that does comes with 32gb ram. So could I make that upgrade myself? and also, what would you recommend?. Would really appreciate your answer.

      • Hi. Iv tried removing the battery strip and luckily thats the only thing u need to remove and the laptop still works on power brick alone. Which is good. Now i can just plug in the power strip back in when im on the go and at home i dont need to use battery and degrade barrery life. But the hard part is to open and close the back pannel all the time to do this. I really wish hp had put a sliding battery in this laptop as eventually this laptop did not have a optical drive. But any ways very nice medium range laptop.
