upgrading the Omen 15 (2020)?

HP Recommended
15-EK0013DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

 

I recently purchased the Omen 15 (2020) and its been really great! I have the i7 intel model with RTX 2060 16GB of RAM and 300hz display. I have two simple questions:

 

- I can upgrade the battery to use a bigger one?

- which SSD I could use to get 1TB of space?

 

Thanks!

Its specs

 

          https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06656951

 

It uses  6-cell, 70.9 Wh Li-ion battery. The series offers 2 batteries

 

  • 6 cell, 70.9 Whr, polymer, HP Long Life
  • 3 cell, 52.5 Whr, polymer, HP Long Life     (for lower specs video card).

And no other battery.

 

Looks like your machine has RAID 0 with two M.2 512GB SSD's.  If you wish to increase to 1TB, you have two options:

 

(a) Replace both drives with

         https://www.intel.com.au/content/www/au/en/products/memory-storage/optane-memory/optane-memory-h10-s...

        and the second 1TB one from other vendor

 

(b) Disable RAID0 and you have 2 drives 512GB + 512GB

          Please try

Note: Please try at your own risk and backup your data before disable RAID0.

 

Regards.

thank you!

 

so in other words, there is no way to use a more powerful battery, right?

 

Regarding the SSD, do I actually have to replace both disks? that is purchasing two 1 terabytes disks? And what about the OS? where is it installed?

 

Thanks again!

Regarding to Drives , you don't have to upgrade both drives , you can leave the 512gb as main drive and ADD and second drive as I did just recently with mine... As I mentioned in a different thread.

 

I recently installed  (2 days ago) "WB Black SN750 - 1 TB NVMe"  as Data Drive and is working better than expected. 

 

The Intel 512gb+32gb Optane still my main OS/Programs drive and WB SN750 as Data/Game drive. 

 

If you need a Raid configuration , that's where you need to do some extra upgrade to be able to Raid the drives.... 

 

I honestly don't like using Raid and have my drives as I was  mentioned above.
