- Answer The RAM is not soldered to the motherboard. It has one slot and can be upgraded to a max 8GB RAM (you would have to remove the 4GB stick and replace it with an 8GB stick).
- Answer Yes, it will work well for Roblox and Minecraft, however if your son will want to broaden their horizons, this computer could not handle games like Fortnite.
QuestionI just got this laptop yesterday and right out the box it was running slower than I would have liked. Is there anything I can do or add to help speed it up?
- Answer You could upgrade the RAM or Hard drive but the main thing that would upgrade the performance is the CPU and it cannot be replaced. Also currently the cost for RAM is very high right now so it would likely be better to exchange it for another model which already has these upgrades complete.
QuestionIs it capable of running games like Minecraft or modded Minecraft smoothly? I have a HP 15-af131dx and it runs somewhat decently, but I want to upgrade for my family and my child asked about his game so I was wondering if it was good on it.
- Answer Thank you for reaching out. Your current model and this model would run very similarly so there would be little reason to upgrade. This computer would run Minecraft but it would hesitate at running mods or even larger maps. Even stepping up a bit to the HP 15-BS113DX (SKU: 6181603) would give you nearly double the power of what your current model gives you. If you are on a tight budget, it is likely you could upgrade your current computer to get some extra speed out of it. Upgrading the RAM to 8GB and the Hard drive to a new Solid State Drive with a clean install of Windows would really help get your current model to its best shape.
