Hello,

I have just received an HP Envy m6 k022dx as a gift.

Overall, I really like the computer and it mostly works for just about everything I use it for. I'd just like to make it respond a little faster without making it unstable in the long run.

I've been contemplating three things:

- Is it possible to exchange my current 5400 rpm HD with a solid state drive and would it make any noticeable difference in performance.

-The Processor/Motherboard/Video card is AMD with integrated graphics so no way to install a faster video card BUT would it be possible to install a faster AMD processor?

- Also, would it be worth maxing out my RAM, currently have 6 Gigs, worth maxing out to 18GB?

Any other suggestions for better performance?

Thanks all,

Mark

On a laptop a ssd would make quite a noticeable difference in boot/shutdown speeds aswell as in program loadup times. Since it is laptop the CPU is soldered in so you can't change that without buying a whole new laptop. 6 gigs of RAM should be enough for most normal uses.
