Upgrade Laptop HDD to SSD

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 17-ak092cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to upgrade to a SSD and I have not opened the laptop yet. I would like to know how thick the HDD is. Is there a recommended SSD or can I get spacers to make up the difference in thickness.

The drives are 2.5", thickness is not listed in the maintenance and service guide but any standard SATA SSD should fit fine. You can always go to and use their system evaluator to find all products that will fit.
