was performance fine with the original drive that came with the laptop?


i would certainly update everything... Use HP Image Assistant and let it update everything it suggests


also, is there a specific reason you split up the SSD into 2 drives

I work for HP. However, all opinions and comments are my own.

I ordered the system in this specs so i don't know what is the performance with original specs.

I will try HP Image Assistant.
No specific reason for splitting in two Just to save the important things to D drive so if window gets corrupt These important documents and project might not gets destroyed.
