Pull up/down resistors on PCB?

I am designing a PCB which uses the STM32F446 MCU. I have the first revision done and working. But I am wondering if all the pull-up and -down resistors on the board can be excluded and use the internals instead?

 

The board has the following components connected with pull up/down:

 

->Micro SD card in SPI mode

->User button

->UART connection with other board

 

When should you use external resistors and when can you rely on the internals?

 

Thank you for any thoughts on the topic.
