Hello,

 

I have a HP Touchmark m7 Envy with a 4th Gen i7.  I understand that my only option to increase RAM is to use 2 blocks of 8GB and 16 GB is the limit.

 

Any recommendations for high performing low cost 8 GB blocks appreciated?

 

Just to be sure I am right on track there are no practical options for soild state, right?

 

And lastly, any recommendations for spare recharageable batteries greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!!

Hi,

Options for Solid State? Do You mean drives? if So i would think plenty of SSD hard drives as options, they will be smaller and more expensive however.

 

I tend to stick with the laptop maker for spare batteries. I've seen problems with cheap eBay batteries.

 

BTW are you sure you need more memory. The largest amount in any of my computers is 6Gb and I never use it all.

 

Good Luck

Roger

well, if you want 16 gigs of RAM, then 2X8gig is the only way to go.  Just know that unless you have some really extraordinary circumstances, you will never notice a difference between 8 and 16 gigs.

 

As far as no solid state.  Why not?  I looked at the HP manuals and evidently SSDs were available from the factory in those.
