I need to purchase a laptop for use with DNS 15.3 Professional/KnowBrainer, and am leaning toward the HP Envy 17-T-CG100.

This computer comes with 16 GB memory, but would allow me to upgrade to 32 GB for $180. It also comes with 512 GB SSD storage, but would allow me to upgrade to 1 TB for an extra $100. I would like to know if either of these upgrades would provide any noticeable benefit in using DNS.

I am an editor and a heavy user of DNS/KnowBrainer (currently working on a desktop but will need the laptop for travel), and would pay for one or both of the upgrades if they would help in the operation of DNS. But I also don't want to make upgrades that aren't necessary. DNS is my only application with relatively high requirements — I work almost entirely on MS Word documents, with no video editing or gaming, etc.

I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thank you.
