Re: Is that all the drive space I get !

Even if not used as a main computer it should have enough HD space to house the OS.  Downloading and installing Windows updates is good practice, even when using a computer for internet use (think hackers and viruses).  And if a user wanted to surf unprotected, it's getting harder for users to opt out of updates.

I upgraded the RAM to 8 GB and put in a 1 TB SATA SSHD and the spects said tyhe max hd was 500 GB so I had to split the partition on the 1tb hd and it worked ok.  not a lot of money and you get a pretty good laptop for the cost.

Re: Is that all the drive space I get !

I was told  you can't install another drive in this unit, I was told this by dell support.  Is this not the case?  from what I gathered the 32gig storage is hard wired to the system board, again, is that not the case?  I would love to install a 256gb ssd or something like that into this unit to get some more bang out of it.

Thanks for any information you an provide.

Welcome to the Dell Community  @Manic35 

The 32GB eMMC Storage Memory cannot be upgraded!!!!!

There are a few options but it takes some time and experience???

I am an "Expert" on the HP forum and a member has worked out a few options.
