Pavilion 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone,

I have HP Pavilion - 15-au620tx laptop with 8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB) and 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA HDD.

Also, as per the manual, I can upgrade till 16 GB of ram (additional 8 GB 2133 MHz, 1.2v DDR4 shared) and also have option for SSD as in Solid-state drive board (part# 856210-001), GNRC SSD 256 GB 2280 M2 SATA3 Value (part# 865902-001) and GNRC SSD 128 GB 2280 M2 SATA-3 Value (part# 827560-016). Just need a suggestion what would be the best fit in terms of RAM and SSD (for the OS boot purpose). 

Note: manual link that I found  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05228250.pdf

Please help.

1. RAM: you can simply add same existing RAM to slot 2 to make 16GB

2. STORAGE: You can use all standard M.2 SATA SSD's for example
