Thoughts on this laptop

My sister is looking to replace her aging Haswell based laptop. For one its slow for two I think one of the kids has taken it over. She saw this one at Best Buy. Seems to be kinda nice. I was trying to figure out if the ram and SSD were replaceable. Just in case down the road she needs more. My biggest concern is that its seems to have Windows 11 preinstalled. I have 0 experience with that OS and I dont plan on installing it on any of my machines any time soon. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

From what I can tell both the RAM and SSD can be upgraded. I don't see why Windows 11 would be a big issue here. It's not a crazy jump from Windows 10 to 11, so if she was getting along with Windows 10 alright then she should be just fine.

Yeah, seems to be replaceable.

Also, Win. 11 shouldn't be a dealbreaker. It's pretty much the same OS, and the cache issue on ryzen processors has been sorted out.
