Can the RAM and CPU of this laptop be upgraded? ?

I have a HP Spectre x360 N1R87UA#ABA Intel Core i7 6th Gen 6500U (2.50 GHz) 8 GB Memory 256 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 520 13.3" Touchscreen 1920 x 1080 Convertible 2-in-1 Laptop Windows 10 Home. Just wonder whether or not the processor and the RAM can be upgraded. If so, what are some suitable options for increasing?

    they don't make laptops upgradeable anymore. the CPUs are often soldered in, and in the case of the Spectre series, they are often glued together, or otherwise extremely difficult to disassemble without breaking something.

    when you buy a laptop, you really need to get what you want up front, because there is often no way to upgrade anything other than RAM or storage drive.

    It isn’t possible to upgrade either, the memory (either 4GB or 8GB options) and the CPU are soldered to the motherboard.
