Question I need some help choosing between either an HP Envy or HP Pavilion laptop ?

Aug 19, 2022
Recently both my MacBook Pro laptop and Windows XP desktop are currently unusable and I’m looking for a temporary replacement. I do like Envy performance, but the memory is a little low compared to Pavilion’s and I’m afraid that my software will use up very quickly. However I’m thinking about upgrading it, but I’m not sure what I should be looking for (is there a RAM specifically for laptop’s)? Also, is there a limit on how much RAM I can install (for example is 16 GB the max)?

The programs that I mainly use are animation software, surfing the web, and playing older PC games (Win 95, 98, and XP software).

  • HP Envy x360 15.6”, AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, 8GB DDR4 RAM / 256GB SSD
  • HP Laptop Touchscreen 17.3”, AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, 16GB DDR4 RAM / 512B PCIe SSD
