i want to upgrade my wifi card in my computer. but cant seem to find any information on this.

Have the chance to buy a INTEL Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 cheap, but not sure if my computer allows me to upgrade to it.

My question is if this i possible to do or do i need do get a different card?

It is possible. Your laptop has no wifi BIOS whitelist. However, the Intel cards do not work well or even always with AMD processors. I recommend you find a Broadcom or Atheros 802.11ac card:

This one says not compatible with Lenovo or HP, but that would only apply to older HPs that had a BIOS whitelist.
