I have an HP Stream 13-Laptop. I thought it was a great buy for the price, until I learned it's cheap primarily because it has a 32GB HDD. Can I buy a 500 GB HDD and swap o;ut? If I can, which HDD can I buy that will fit?

I'm planning to buy another cheap laptop, which I can buy even cheaper. I can even tell you which laptops to choose from, if you tell me which HDDs will fit it?

Don't think so you can change out the HD.  Apparently its "HD" is really an eMMC so it's attached to the motherboard.  What you can do is get a microSD and stick it in the slot on the PC.  Currently the largest you can get is 128GB but they tend to be pretty expensive.  However a 64GB is reasonable:




and that would give you a lot more room than you have now.
