My desktop has an Intel I-7 CPU and a 1 TB HDD divided into 2 partitions: (1) the main partition with the OS and data; and (2) the recovery partition. It also has the Intel Optane feature (16 GB I believe). Since it's already maxed out on memory (16 GB), I'd like to speed things up if possible with the OS residing on an SSD, and keep the HDD and leave all my other data storage on it. I have several questions:
1. Does the above plan make sense?
2. Can I add an SSD to my configuration even though my desktop has Intel Optane?
3. If I can add an SSD, what would be an appropriate size for this device?
4. Are there any recommendations about specific brands/models of SSDs that play nice with HP's Envy desktops?
