Adding 8mb for 12 mb is the max memory that a person can get out of it
with the non-removable 4 mb of memory it has. Is that correct?

I guess I could connect a larger external screen monitor to be pass the 14" monitor.
Is that correct?

Thank you,

Is the memory upgradable?

I was reading the service in the link above and it is says
"Memory is non-customer accessible/non-upgradeable"

Are you stuck with the original memory configuration
that it comes with?

The manual gave different memory configurations but it said memory
configurations are not accessible. I don't understand that

Thank you,

If I would add 4GB DDR 4 & a Solid State drive to it,
it would have much better performance that a 8GB DDR 3 laptop.
Is that correct?
It depends, on the CPU and the age/use of out it before hand. Having said that an SSD is more better technically than a HDD. I replaced my son's HDD in his *lemon* Dell and it made a slight difference.

As noted by Frank, this machine has a 4GB non-removable memory so that one you cannot change, but you can add one more in the additional slot that is shown on page 42 of the service manual I provided the link to.

Total up what you have to spend to add more parts, then see if you can find a better model for that same total cost. Maybe a 15 inch laptop?

I have serveral DDR3 laptops with the screen size I want that
I could upgraded. I think I would have simular preformace with
one of the.

The fact that I would have to plug it into a monitor to seriously use it
could be a problem I may not use it even if I made the purchase.

How does the Security Lock work on it? Is there a separate part for that?

Thanks

I have a Hp 15go69ci
It has a nice size screen.

If I put a SS drive in it would I have similar performance?
It has win 8.1 which is ok.

S/N CND435707D or maybe CND436707D,
Its difficult to tell if it is a 5 or a 6 with that small print.
I think it is a 5 after a second look.

It is a touch screen.
It seems like it is a nice laptop.

Thank you,

Thank you,
The same command I gave you in the beginning of the post will get you the serial number.

It's HP 15-g069cl (l not i), and s/n CND435707D :

https://support.hp.com/us-en/produc...duct-info?sku=J5T30UA&serialnumber=CND435707D

CPU: AMD Quad-Core A8-6410 APU << AMD Athlon Silver 3050U (comparison)
MEM: 8 GB DDR3L-1866 (single channel) vs 4GB DDR4-2400 (single channel) = more but slower memory. Should add one memory stick to both for more memory plus dual channel.
Video: AMD Radeon R5 graphics < AMD Radeon RX Vega 2, but both suck for gaming.
Display: 15.6-inch (1366x768) vs 14-inch (1366x768). So neither are full HD (1920x1080).
HD: 750 GB 5400 RPM vs 500 GB 5400 RPM. Upgrade both to SSD.

The HP 15-g069cl does have win 10 drivers available from HP, so it could be upgraded to win 10.

HP dk1046Nr is a marginal improvement over HP 15-g069cl, but not sure you will notice anything other than the smaller screen. I'd either invest in memory / ssd / windows upgrades for HP 15-g069cl, or save up to spend more on a better laptop.

I don't think It not worth spending $100+ on the small screen HP dk1046Nr for
marginal improvement over HP 15-g069cl. Especially since I already the HP 15-g069cl.

Its not going to be a gaming machine I think I might give the HP 15-g069cl a try by putting
a solid state drive in it.

I guess it would take a 3" x 2" Solid State drives. I don't think I could use
the newer single drive that looks like a memory stick. Is that correct?

I guess Newegg is a possible vender to get that SS drive.

Thank you,
