i was not trying to start a flame war, my intention was to point out the system seems to be preconfigured with the same specs which is xp1700 and 512MB or RAM, which is already what he has. the info seems to me to be unclear as it says:
"512MB 133 MHz SyncDRAM, 2 total DIMM slots upgradeable to 512MB"
since the computer already has 512MB, would it not make more sense to say it is upgradeable to 512MB max in each of the 2 slots with 1024MB total max memory instead of plain "upgradeable to 512MB". otherwise it seems to me to be saying "you can not upgrade anything", which doesn't make sense.
kirtar- since it mentions nothing about max processor it is assumed the user is not meant to be able to upgrade processor. even if you could it may take a BIOS update to recognise xp2400, i would not recommend trying to upgrade processor.
since you already have 512MB memory i would also not recommend upgrading to more memory unless you use programs with abnormally large memory requirements like 3d animation apps that need massive memory to render each animation frame. basic ms office, web browsing, and most 3D games do not need more memory than what you have.
