hp-15 f211wm WHAT CAN I UPGRADE?

HP Recommended
hp-15 f211wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hello, I'm very new at upgrading. I love my laptop and I'm into video editing. I use Adobe premiere pro cc 2017 and my hp-15 f211wm surprisingly runs it! But when I start adding more clips, layers and effects the play back becomes laggy. I just have the basic out of the box specs. Never upgraded but would love to! What all can be upgraded on this model??
If so what specific part #'s would I need?
Sorry for being a n00b.

Hello @Kelvinsmingus,

 

You may upgrade the Memory and the Harddrive to SSD.

 

Your PC will support upto 8GB of RAM.

 

8 GB memory module Part number :693374-001

There is not so much on this model that is easily upgradeable.  I chose an Intel Core i3 processory as a minimum processor requirement when we purchased one of these for our 16 y/o last year.

 

The Celeron processor is integrated into the systemboard and not a socketed replaceable part and thus, not upgradeable.

 

There is only one memory slot that is accessible to you as the owner.  Upgrading memory for this notebook requires quite a bit of disassembly. Kingston memory sells modules  and SSD products that are 100% Guaranteed to be compatible with your notebook.

The existing 2.5" SATA (legacy) hard disk can be upgraded to a 2.5"  SATA SSD.  Kingston Memory also sells them. See the web document in the previous link I provided.

 

I would consider upgrading to a notebook with a processor that has more power instead of adding upgrade parts that, in cost, approach half the current value of the notebook.
