HP Pavilion x360 Upgrades

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion x360 Model-13-u027tu Product Number-x0t25pa#abg
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I have a Hp Pavilion x360 that I'm trying to upgrade the memory and storage, it comes with a 128gb ssd in a m2 slot and 8gb ddr4 ram. I was just talking to hp support and they told me that is the maximum amount of ram and storage the unit can handle but I dont really believe it. She wanted to send me some emails to buy a new laptop at the end of the conversation.  I'm looking at putting in a Samsung evo 1tb ssd and 16gb ram. Does anybody know if this would be ok, and also how many ram slots this laptop has? I have to pull the motherboard out to get to them and dont really want to do that until I have an upgrade to put it.

 

Thanks muchly

Its specs

 

         https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c05201429

 

It is an Intel Gen 6 machine with an Intel® Core™ i5-6200U (2.3 GHz, up to 2.8 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores) processor.  The series dos NOT offer dual storage options therefore

 

  1. STORAGE: You have to replace existing 128 GB M.2 SSD (which is SATA) to a larger capacity M.2 SATA SSD drive using Crucial MX500 or Samsung 860EVO or similar
  2. RAM: It has 8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB) now and supports 16GB (2 x 8GB) max. You can upgrade to 16GB by adding same existing RAM to slot 2 OR using the following compatible RAM (will run at 2133MHz)

Thank you, I wasnt trying to put dual storage in it just put a bigger one in it like a 1tb Samsung evo 970 nvme. The hp support lady told me I wouldn't be able to do that and said it only has one ram slot

2 memory slots on Intel Core models. As stated above uses DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM. Max is actually 32 gigs but this is unofficial. M.2 is definitely SATA only not NVME.

Thanks for clarifying that, I was a bit confused about the whole m2 / nvme situation and was just about to post another question asking about it. Also I'm only looking at upgrading it to 16gb ram so that should be fine then. 

 

Thanks again for the help today guys  🙂
