The AMD laptop at Office Depot might be to much of a pain to change the hard drive

The Intel laptop for the same price at Best Buy would be easier. Assuming the manual isn’t lying and it’s the right manual. Skip Office Depot and go to Best Buy instead. When they try to sell me a better one, I’ll say “Ok I’ll come back in a month or two.". Wait a month or two and buy a Mac. A MacBook will come with a SSD. No opening it required.
