Mine went smoothly. I had trepidation with so many user group failures. HP Pavilion 17t with 2TB hdd and 128GB Samsung 850 EVO m.2 SSD. With the SSD C Drive too undersized (98 temaining for C) for it to even hold Windows, applications, and the big data tthat ends up in appdata. But so many write that HP didn't design to take large capacity SSDs. With the Samsung 850 EVO rated near the top in performance I bought the 1TB. I had planned the 500GB but it seemed never in stock. People I read were substituting other brands or other models of Samsung for their failures compared to what they were upsizing — or doing a clean install. I simply cloned it with Samsungs Data Migration Wizard and a cheap m.2 SATA USB adapter. Fearing it would not recognize or only recognize 128GB I fired it up before reassembly and it came right on full speed. 30 minutes to clone and 30 minutes to disassemble and reassemble using HP’s PDF manual for the model. HP performance test came out amazing.
I’d recommend upsizing to anyone.

I want to buy a light 14" laptop of less than 2Kg, with 512GB SSD with slot for upgrade for 1TB SSD.
Other requirements are i7 8th Gen and 8GB/16GB.
I am looking for Elite or ZBook Pro, Is there a laptop model which I can buy?
