  1. Hi,

    I have the HP Pavilion Gaming Notebook 15-ak002na. The one picture above is the 15-AK000.

    Will my motherboard have the Mini PCIe SSD slot? I know I can upgrade the ram (I can see the free port through the vent), and I will be upgrading that to 16GB later in the year.

    Additionally I will be replacing the 2.5″ WD Drive with a 1TB SSD or 1TB Hybrid drive.

    I don’t want to void my warranty so I need to know before I take it apart.

  2. A have a question, i change my AK005 wi fi pcie card and notice i only have one antenna, do you know if that is common to happen?

  3. Is the keyboard replaceable or do you recommend replacing the entire palmrest with keyboard? I see keyboard replacement parts on line but do not know if it’s feasible due to the fasteners used to hold the keyboard in place.
