Solved!

I wanted to know if the cpu is socketed or soldered on.(if it's upgradable or not)

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 15-af114au
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am looking to upgrade my laptop. I know that it has 2 RAM slots and I will most probable getting 16Gb of RAM and also upgrade the hard-drive to an SSD. I wanted to know if a CPU upgrade is possible. Also, I am getting incredibly low WiFi speeds. Even if I have a 100Mb/s Bandwidth, Even if I sit right next to the router, I am barely getting about 10Mb/s. I have tried all software fixes available on the internet like disabling Windows update optimization, Metered connection etc. I have also dual booted the machine with Ubuntu and Windows 10 Home 64bit but Even on Ubuntu, It seems to give me not more than 20Mb/s. I am looking if a WiFi card upgrade is possible as this is an old model and the fault can be with the WiFi card. I need help on all these issues. A reply would be much appreciated as I could not find much help on this model on the web.

Thanks!

Its specs

 

   https://support.hp.com/si-en/document/c04778836

 

1. Wifi: It only has slow 802.11b/g/n (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.0 combo 

             You MAY BE ABLE you upgrade to a faster card but with ONLY one antenna; Intel 316x cards can be used.

2. CPU: It has the top of the line CPU and CPU is soldered down to its system board.

3. RAM: The book says it supports 8GB max, but you can use

             https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr3/ct2k102464bf186d/ct9658163     (RAM will run at 1600MHz)

4. SSD: You can upgrade to 2.5" SATA SSD using Crucial MX500 or Samsung 850EVO or similar. Example
