I'm looking at this HP laptop Model: 17-x115dx. Must have USB 3.1 working and the video card working. WIFI and network working would be nice as well. Do you think I could get Sierra and the the needed working hardware on this laptop?

I saw someone else having USB 3.1 issues with a HP laptop, so I would be curious if this is a symptom of USB 3.1 problems with HP laptops or a more widespread problem?
