Its specs


 which clearly says: The chassis is not designed for hardware upgrades.

@Grumpytoad -- why are you considering an upgrade?


Its current specifications seem to be "high-end":


* Intel Core i5-7400T, CPU speed: 2.4 GHz (3.0 GHz - max turbo boost), CPU cores: 4

* 16 GB DDR4 RAM

* small SSD and 2 TB disk-drive


While using your favorite apps, open the Windows "Task Manager" and select the "Performance" tab.

How "busy" is the CPU? How much RAM is "free" ?
