p.s. If I'm wrong, someone set me straight... I have never done any upgrades to laptop before... so most of this is just speculation.
Ive never upgraded anything in laptops either...but iv opened up a couple...and yes...the ram can be upgraded by opening up a small plate at the bottom....
Ok...thanx for your replies....but i doubt i will be upgrading anything in it in the near future...hehe...so for the time being, as is, which is better to get? extra CPU speed or extra RAM? (i think i will end up customizing a dell one...but would i out 2 gigs of ram with a 1.6 or 1.66 ghz cpu or a 2.0 ghz cpu with 1 gb of RAM?)
