can I add SSD to my HDD storage

HP Recommended
pavilion x360 15-bk010ne
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello guys,

I would like to ask if I can add SSD with my HDD that I have in my laptop, I have 8 Gb ram 
Is it better to add another 8Gb ram and have 2x 8Gb ram or should I get 1x 16Gb ram? 
Thanks in advance.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05235424

 

Chapter 1 has the memory upgrade info and supported drive types.

 

Your notebook does not have a M.2 slot to add storage.

 

You would need to replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.

 

I disagree with the memory info in the manual.

 

You should be able to add another 8 GB memory chip to the existing one and have 16 GB.

 

A single 16 GB memory chip will not work and 2 x 8 GB would run better anyway since it would run in dual channel mode.

 

Here is the crucial memory/SSD report for a similar model to yours...
