Hi:

 

The product specs for your notebook indicate that it comes with a 1 TB 2.5" mechanical hard drive.

You have a couple of options:

 

Replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SATA solid state drive (SSD).

 

Also, according to the service manual, your notebook has a M.2 slot that supports the much faster performing M.2 NVMe SSD's.

 

You may want to consider installing one of those instead.

If you want to replace the drive, look into one of the Western Digital Blue SA510 models in a storage capacity that meets your needs and budget:

 

This is the 1 TB model for example:

The manual indicates that HP offered NVMe SSD's up to 512 GB in storage capacity in the model series.

 

If you want to install one of those drives instead, the Samsung 980 would be a good choice.

The only thing I don't know is if the M.2 SSD hold down screw is already present your notebook, since your notebook did not come with a NVMe SSD.
