Nice all around for the bucks
from Oak Bluffs, MA
Room for a second ssd hard drive. Don't forget you need a caddy and a cable to add the HD. I was a little worried about an HP product but they have put together a nice package. I Got rid of all the bloatware.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
