Just got the laptop. So far it's been a great

A few tips:

1) The laptop has an HP/Windows recovery built in but that takes up space. You can use the HP software to create a copy "recovery media" on a USB drive. Just load the recovery app, put in an empty USB and click create.

2) Reinstall windows using the create media tool from Microsoft. This way you get a clean install of windows and don't waste space with the HP partitions. After doing this I had ~98 out of 118 GB free.

3) Most of the drivers auto installed with Windows except for the Radeon one, but you can find those on the HP support site or via the HP Support Assist app.

4) USB-C charging works great. I've tried 15W, 27W, and 65W. All seemed to charge it but the 15W only charged with the laptop closed in sleep or off mode.

5) Keyboard is really nice so far.

6) Replacing the SSD drive seems possible, but you have to pull off the rubber "strip/feet" in order to get to the screws. From the looks of it, that rubber strip won't go back on easily so you may end up needing to order a replacement.

Hope this helps.

How is the plain vanilla install working compared to the HP one which has the HP specific quiet mode, etc?

It's a plain vanilla Windows but you can install the HP software from support. If you install the HP Command Center then it still has the "Quiet" option for example - see screenshot.

So the laptop arrived 3 days ago. I got the "open box - excellent" product at slightly more than $400 after tax, which I thought was a great price. Laptop arrived in just the HP box. Box condition was not great, but the laptop was in flawless condition. BIOS was f.19, so I flashed it to f.35. Then I updated drivers for wifi, firmware, display, etc through device manager as opposed to downloading from HP's website. So far, everything has worked great. No dropped wifi connections, no heat problems, no issues at all. Thanks OP!

Now I have to decide when to upgrade NVME. Any suggestions on a good one that does not heat up too much?

I am also considering this. So if you or anyone else has suggestions please share.

Also how do you deal with the rubber feet replacement...

So after much research, I decided to get the Intel 660P 1TB NVME. I chose this NVME over the faster Inland Premium NVME because of power draw, heat and cost considerations. Just installed it last night. Had to do a fresh Windows install. Several screws were underneath the rubber strips, so had to lift them up. But the rubber strips went back on just fine.

Still love this laptop. Super slick and fast!

Awesome. Thanks for the update on this. I'm still on the original drive and love this laptop but have been eyeing a drive update.

Did you add any glue when you put the feet back or did they just stick?

No added glue. I just peeled rubber strip off on one end to undo the screws, then repeat on the other side. Never really took off the entire strip. By the way, I also upgraded BIOS from f.35 to f.42 while I was messing with all the drivers after the fresh Windows install. Didn't seem to make any difference.
