These are your specs:

Your Service Manual 

 

red arrow points to SSD; memory right above red arrowred arrow points to SSD; memory right above red arrow

 

Start upgrade procedure on p. 34. This is all end-user allowed work so no warranty concerns. 

 

You can upgrade the existing 256 gig SSD to a 512 gig like this:

You could have a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD added to the existing setup but would need mounting hardware. Post back to discuss further if you like that option. 

 

You can add an 8 gb DDR4-2666 SO-DIMM like this:

And i can put this type of ram (HyperX Impact 8GB DDR4 2666mhz Cl15) but i don't know if the size matters on the ram.

The Crucial will work as an NVME M.2 SSD but that particular one is a budget NVME and not quite as fast as a 970 Evo. Still fast enough. 

 

I do not recommend HyperX or other "gaming" or performance memory. The experience with it is spotty and if it works it still runs at OEM specs so better to buy OEM type memory. The HDD can be cloned to the SSD as along as there is not more on the HDD than the SSD can hold. We can recommend cloning software such as Macrium Reflect Free. Otherwise you can remove the hard drive and do a clean install of Windows 10 onto the SSD. Its a free download and you need no Key Code to activate it. 

 

Post back with any other questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Ok, i think i'm going to buy the crucial p1 because the price difference it's quite a bit.

Now for the ram i won't buy the hyperX, but is this one going to work (RAM SO.DIMM Kingston valueRam 8gb ddr4-2666mhz CL19).

Kingston Value RAM also sometimes causes issues. It is built to run with the broadest possible spectrum of machines, and sometimes HP laptops are finickly and won't take it. I encourage you to buy Samsung or Hynix, like that: generic laptop OEM memory.

Yes it's an M.2 NVME. One of the better ones.
