HP robo-support has directed me to the manual for the manual for the HP Pavilion Notebook (Intel) Star WarsTM Special Edition Notebook. I don't know if the model I have is identical to that one or is different enough to preclude me from relying fully on that manual. I inherited the laptop from a relative. It seems relatively likely it is a 2015 model.
Here are some things I am wanting to know:
Is it possible to add another hard drive, including an SSD to the laptop? If so, are there storage capacity limitations?
Is there any limit to the storage capacity for an external hard drive which can be attached to this model?
Is a processor upgrade possible?
